Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #461


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the "Add a Die Cut" Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Make Your Own Background

 We are using Lawn Fawn products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)  

For my project, I used several Lawn Fawn products ( please see link below). Dies and stamps are the easiest way to create a background.  

love ya

 First, I die cut the sentiment die and placed them in the card front. I then stamped the leftover space with the flowers. For the final touches, I added gilding with the help of Sticky Embossing Powder. This background is truly one of a kind, don't you think?

If you look at your stash, you can easily pull out a few elements to create a background.
Hope you are inspired and now want create a background of your own.
