Back to Basics


This week on the Sugar Nellie - PCP Challenge, we had a challenge to make a card without DP!... So I went back to basics on this card, and not only have I used Mirri Board (despite vowing never to use it again) I have also stamped and emobssed my own background!..  (go me!) :D

It was quite a challenge but really nice to reconnect with a side of stamping I often forget.
I used a digi-stamp from Funky Kits/Sugar Nellie and I die cut my leaves.

This is the one challenge I like to make sure I enter each week, as it has 3 great Sugar Nellie stamps (free choice) up for grabs.  Its a small forum type challenge and really friendly. :)

I am also entering this card in the following competitions:

Colour Create Challenge - Red, Gold and White
PaperPlay Challenges - Autumnal colours
Totally Gorjuss - Use Flowers
Allsorts challenge - Colours of Autumn

Thanks so much for looking xxalisonxx
