Make your own Designer Paper

The Limited Supply Challenge on SCS for Friday is to make your own designer paper. Now this was one of the top reasons I started stamping...because I could make my own! I knew this card hit the mark when Jay asked me if the main pannel was dp and I proudly corrected him.

It all started with vanilla paper. I stamped the images with Old Olive and filled them in with a celery marker. Then came the chocolate chip in the spritzing tool. I then inked up my aidia cloth background and stamped over everything. The finishing touch was the sponging on the edge.

I made what I thought looked like a matching small piece of dp by stamping a pattern of the small leave on olive. I just love these little dew drops on the top, I think they are so pretty!

Have a wonderful weeked! I'll be celebrating my husbands birthday and enjoying time with friends. I'm also shooting to finally get that veggie garden planted!
