PWC302 - Create Your Own Background Paper

Paper Pretties challenge for you this week is to create your own background paper.  While you don't have to use Paper Pretties products to play in our challenges this is one challenge that quite a few of our stamp sets would be perfect to use.  There are a lot of Paper Pretty stamp sets that have one or more large main stamp or stamps and one or more small co-ordinating tiny stamps.   

On my card I used the "Dog Gone Birthday" set.  It has that great paw print, a large bone and a small bone.  I don't usually make background paper but I like to use the stamps on the inside of the card.  

By the way, a sentiment can be stamped onto your background paper.  For instance, the instance the word "Woof!" could be stamped over and over again, that would look great.

This time of year you might want to make an Easter card in which case the Hippity Hoppity Sophia stamp set is a great choice.  I made a card for the same themed challenge with that set last year, you can click here to see it.

Speaking of Easter cards we've got an adorable set of digital "Easter Babies" images available in the Paper Pretties store.  These are sold as a fund raiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.  You can do a good deed and have something fun to show for it.  

Don't forget that for the month of March we are having a Special! That's right all month long just enter the code "FREESHIP" at checkout on all orders over $10 and get FREE SHIPPING!  So if you're ordering anything besides digis, and you really want to order those cute "Easter Baby" digis, that total more than $10 make sure you put the code in before you close out your order.  You deserve a present, spoil yourself and place order.  It'll make you happy.   I know it makes me happy.
