What...!!! No DP...!!!!

Good morning sweet stamping friends. Gosh it is Monday already. The weekend goes way too quickly. I had a wonderful weekend with Hubby home for three days instead of the usual two. I didn't want him to go back to work today. Oh well someone has to make some money around here. LOL.

Okay I made this card for Farm Fresh Friday at The Greeting Farm. You read the title right - No patterned paper or DP to be used anywhere on your creation. I actually found this quite easy. As soon as I figured what embossed card to use I decided to make it look sort of like a quilt pattern and stitched it all together. I sprayed the cherry blossoms with the same pink/red Copic marker that I used on the image. Unfortunately it didn't work quite as well as I thought it might but it still looks okay. I love these Twinkle Tots and am thankful that I was finally able to get one coloured up (I have four of the five available). Enjoy your day everyone.

Products: TGF stamp; SU card; Cuttlebug and embossing plate; sewing machine; SU pastels; cherry blossoms; Punch Bunch leaf punch.

I think you have done a great job considering the challenge of no patterned paper, I don't think I would have managed it, I love my patterned paper
