Dream Valley Challenge 74 - No Designer Papers


What a miserable day! I tell you, it makes me want to stay in all day in my jammies :-)

Anyway, on to the new challenge from Dream Valley. This week we would like you to show us what you can do without designer papers!

I wanted to make my non-DP-background a feature of the card so I've kept it quite plain. I used a background stamp that I randomly stamped across a piece of white card and then embossed in white. I apologise for the photo. If I'd known it was this bad I'd have taken another before I gave the card away! :-)

You can see the embossed background a bit more clearly on this pic....

I cut the blue background heart from another piece of my layering card, and then the overlay heart from another piece of embossed white card.  I found a pretty piece of matching ribbon to tie a little bow for the top.....

I hope you like it! Fingers crossed this weather improves soon. The hail storm yesterday was quite scary! I hope it's better wherever you are, but if you are stuck indoors all day like me, maybe you can pop over to Dream Valley for some non-DP inspiration???

Love 'n' hugs,

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a happy new year :-)

Dream Valley is back with another challenge and also a DT call so you fancy joining our crazy bunch, make sure you pop over and take a look!

Our challenge this time is all about the men!

I've used a really sweet image from LOTV and added the word "cowboy" using my letter tile stamps :-)

Hope you like it. Don't forget to pop over to Dream Valley and take a look :-)
