Today over at Sugar Creek Hollow we have a wonderful challenge for you!!!!!

Make your OWN Designer Paper!!!!! It's SO much fun and SO EASY! So go ahead, try it, and see how amazing it makes your card look!

Here's mine!

I created my designer paper with a simple piece of red card stock,,,,,,,,,and a stamp. I used versafine black onyx ink (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE for dark, crisp stamping) and randomly stamped all over the red paper. Simple as that! I love the effect!

I found this gorgeous image on Bumble Button, and cut it out and matted it with circles large,,,,,,,a sheer double bow, a gold metal button and she's finished. It's not often I make a CAS card,,,,,,,but I am really loving the home made DP and wanted to really let that shine!

Here's a close up of that adorable image!

I hope you enjoyed the card, and thanks for looking!!!! Now get out those stamps and ink, sprays and glitter and make yourself some gorgeous DP and upload YOUR card to Sugar Creek Hollow! I can't wait to see what you create!!!!!!!
