Create Your Own Background

Hi Everyone!
There's a fun new challenge starting today at

The theme is:


The design team have created some FABULOUS 
samples to help inspire you ... be sure to pop over and see for yourself.

Here's what I came up with:

With all the beautiful dies on the market today you 
can create a work of art in no time at all!

Today I've created my background using Tim Holtz distress inks
and large sponge daubers.  And then I got busy choosing dies that would
help showcase my simple color scheme.

 I recently purchased a few new dies from Dies R Us and was
anxious to try them out.  So, today's the day!  
Sue Wilson Designs - Perspectives - Hugs
They are Sue Wilson dies:
Finishing Touches - Daisy Cluster - CED1450 (which is evidently OOS)

I do hope you'll come join in our challenge fun!
I truly look forward to seeing everyone's creations and drawing inspiration ... Lord knows I could use some additional inspiration these days!  LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day!
As always . . .

Papers:  White cs, Black cs
Ink:  Tim Holtz distress inks: Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, Broken China
Accessories:  Dies identified above, pop dots, large sponge daubers

Who doesn't love a BIG hug? This is a great card. Love your sponged background in the different shades of blue! And those bright white flowers are so pretty!

Love it...not only is it very pretty and great combination of those dies, too, but it looks to be an easy mailer, which I need to do more of!! Great sponging in the background, too!!
