Simon Says Make Your Own Background

It's Wednesday...and it's time for a new Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Challenge!!  I am thrilled to be a guest designer for another challenge this week!!
  The challenge this week is: Make Your Own Background
The challenge is showcasing Lawn Fawn products, and although not necessary to enter the challenge, if you have Lawn Fawn products to use on your cards, that would be wonderful!!
The winner of the challenge will be given a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp...sweet!!!

I made my own background with a set of Lawn Fawn border dies, Stitched Borders, that I embossed a number of times diagonally across my white cardstock.  The borders came attached, and I have not cut them apart, so it was very easy to emboss the four borders, and then move them all (the one piece), to emboss another four...
I then adhered a rainbow of cardstock strips together, and die cut the Lawn Fawn "thanks" die.  I layered the sentiment and added another Lawn Fawn sentiment from the Pizza My Heart stamp set.
I added some Tonic Jewel Drops for a little bling:)!  Here's a close up...

Such fun...who knew making backgrounds could be so much fun and be so easy!!
You have until next Wednesday at 8am (EST) to join the fun and create something amazing for this week's challenge!  
Hope, too, you will get connected to Simon's Wednesday Challenge if you're not already...a great way to stay inspired!! You can see what the amazing design team has created for this challenge by clicking the link above.

  2. So pretty, Lisa! Love the subtle stitched stripes and the more bold ones repeated in your sentiment!

  3. This is such a lovely card. The subtle embossing with bright sentiment is fantastic.

  4. I can't decide which I like best; the beautiful background, the colorful die cut, the clean placement of just a few items--oh I like the whole thing!
