Sweet Sugar Challenge 6

This weeks challenge over at Sweet Sugar Challenge is to make a card without using all your lovely backing papers!!!

Being told not to do something was like being a teenager again and I wanted to fight back, so I cheated a bit and created my own backing paper with a Hero Arts background stamp and my versamark ink pad.

Stamp - Sugar Nellie
Background stamp - Hero Arts
Ribbon - Ribbon Oasis
Embossing - Cuttlebug Swiss Dots
Buttons - Papermania
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat

Great card Tara, I love the swiss dots folder I am always using mine. The Ebay seller I used for my whipper snapper stamps is olddonsgeneralstore x.

great card Tara. It's not cheating, it's being creative! (It's not patterned paper, it's patterned background - entirely different :D)

good luck with the no stash buying - I couldn't do it, way too much temptation unless you stay away from all the blogs and forums! x
