Speedy the Cats' Friends Challenge #7

Welcome to Speedy the Cats' Friends Saturday challenge! This week our challenge is to make your own designer paper using stamps.

I stamped this fun sentiment (A Fine Pear) repeatedly across my white card stock to create my DP. I first drew lines in pencil so I would stamp straight!!

Then I just added the sentiment popped up on foam dimensionals and the ribbon and charm. This card could be either a wedding or anniversary card.

The stamp set is a Mark's Finest Papers June release called Pears & Hollyhocks. The pretty gingham ribbon , gold thread and pear charm are also from Faith's store.

We'd love to have you join us in the challenges over on Marks Finest Papers Blog and to link your card there. You could win a free stamp set!

What a clever idea to use a repeat pattern of a sentiment as the background. I love it. I think I'm going to have to get this set. So glad you are a part of this team.
