That Craft Place DT - Make you own Backing Paper

Good morning again my dears,   Time for another challenge over at 

Our theme for the next two weeks is Make your own Background paper/s.  This isn't as difficult as it sounds,  you could like me just use stamps on white card, or embossing, if you need inspiration then please pop over to the blog as there is an amazing variety of 
ideas on how to create yours.  

I used my large stampin' up wheel and friends stamp for the main page and my swirl stamp for the top layer using memento cocoa ink.  My image is a sweet Tilda with small gift and I placed her on a spellbinders lace die,  which is available over at That Craft Place store and on our Facebook page where Lisa has a multitude of wonderful crafting goodies for sale. 

I've used a Whimsy stamps corner die and a Whimsy sentiment die and sentiment.  My swirls are the mini flourish die from Cheery Lynn, all available at That Craft Place   and those delicious beaded Kort&Godt roses.

We are being sponsored this fortnight by
