♥ Simon Says...Make Your Own Background ♥

Hello! Hope you are enjoying your day so far. It's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog. This week's challenge...Make Your Own Background.
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by My Favorite Things. I used the Graduated Dots Stencil along with some Texture Paste. While the paste was still wet I added some Prima White and Light Pink Art Sugar Glitter to the dots.


The stamped sentiment is from the New Beginnings Clear Stamp Set also by MFT.


I finished off the card with some Prima Coffee Break Flowers, May Arts Natural Twine, punched Martha Stewart Butterfly and some White Opal Liquid Pearls.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!




Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 




Today is my little sister's 15th Wedding Anniversary. Whew! Time sure does fly! To the BEST Sister and Brother-in-Law anyone could have...I hope you have a lovely day!   

Hope you all have a fabulous day! ;)

hugs...
