Morning all.
Tuesday morning means a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
Sorry you didn't like last week's sketch but hopefully you will prefer this weeks topic of -


So basically a card made using anything but design paper, You could make your own or use embossing folders to create your own background or go completely CAS like me.

My ideas for this card came from a few challenges out there in blogland.
I first masked off the edges of my card to make a white border then stamped the LOTV sentiment phrase in Versamark the heat embossed with white. I added some stars using a Tim Holtz stencil and an embossing pen and heat embossed them before adding some smaller stamped stars. 
When cool I inked up the central panel using a selection of blue DIs.

Pop over to the main site to check out more fab inspiration from the rest of the DT and our GDs.

I'm joining in the fun over at -
