Fourth Friday Challenge!

** I have two posts today! Scroll down for today's Clear Dollar Stamps Sneak Peeks! **

Are you ready for a challenge?? Today is the fourth Friday in November, so it's time for the Paper Garden Projects Fourth Friday Challenge to use "Backgrounds". This can be a background stamp or a stamp used as a background like I did for my card.

First I stamped my Snowflakes by Impression Obsession in Versamark ink on white cardstock. I covered them with holographic embossing powder and heat set them.

Then I used navy ink and brocade blue ink to sponge around the embossed snowflakes, and added the word 'Joy' from a set by Clear Dollar Stamps. In honor of Black Friday, the twist for this challenge is to use the color black, so I pulled out my last piece of black cardstock (Note to self: Buy black cardstock...) and some black ribbon to put the finishing touches on the base layers and the sentiment. I added a little more "bling" to the snowflakes, mounted the layers on a base card of Nautical Blue Light cardstock and Voila - here's my card!

Be sure to look at the prize and link up your challenge card over on Cathy's blog - and you *have* to see her project. It's adorable! You have until midnight of December 4th to be in the running for the prize which is TWO background stamps from the store!!

I can't wait to see what you create!!!

BTW - be sure to check out the current Paper Garden Projects store specials! Copics and Penny Black Stamps and embellishments are all on sale!!

Blessings!
