*gasp - NO Designer Paper

But......... but.......... BUT... I almost always use designer paper. Whatever has possessed me to make this card without any designer paper???

A challenge, of course: 

March 4 - 10
Theme: NO Designer Paper

I hope you'll participate!

I decided to create the background for my card by inking a piece of white cardstock with a variety of colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks (Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, and Shabby Shutters). Then I stamped the flowers on the altered cardstock with Versafine ink and heat embossed with JudiKin Opaque White Embossing Powder.

I added some ribbon - it almost looks like Designer Paper, right? And a fussy cut and colored flower and a few gum drops. I kind of like the artsy feel of this card.

Here's the inside:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
