I’m a background texture or DSP kinda girl (otherwise I feel the card looks too bare – I admire those who can resist and create simple cards). I kept trying different patterned DSP with the challenge colors to, but it just wasn’t working. I finally curtailed myself and left it simple and I must admit I think it looked better this way. Here’s my card.

Success – no background paper or dry embossing – I did it! Now back to my usual background papers, layers and dry embossing!


Here’s what you’ll need to make this card:
