Magnolia-licious Challenge DT - No Designer Paper

Hello my dears,  I hope you are all well and having a crafty week so far.  It's time for another wonderful challenge over at 

This fortnight's theme is No Designer Paper. You could make your own backing paper using stamps, computer etc. you may even be brave enough to use no paper at all.  I've used whitewash card and one of my embossing folders,  I then used my sanding block to reveal the colour underneath.  I like the effect a lot.

As you can see I've used this utterly adorable Cocco with Present from the Little Christmas Collection 2012, I find the stamp perfect for such a lot of occasions and I'm using her today for a friends Birthday.  You can find this sweet image  Here  at Magnolia-licious Stamps and much much more

Do please pop over and take a peek at the wonderful new stamps available from Diana at Magnolia-licious Stamps,  the selection is getting larger by the day, at the moment you can find all your Magnolia standard size - Magnolia Mini's (which I love to bits)  Little Darling - Wee from Whimsy - Wild Rose Studio  and Penny Black, not forgetting all the other amazing crafty items such as dies/papers/storage solutions and much more.
