Theme Thursday - Green & Brown


I have been wanting to try the new Faux Designer Paper technique from Technique Junkies with a different color combination and when I saw the challenge on Theme Thursday today, I thought - perfect!

I used Christmas stamps from Autumn Leaves that I won playing Dirty Santa at our annual stamp club Christmas party. Oh, I love these stamps! I knew they would be great with this technique. Sorry for the thievery Marguerite! Maybe I should send her this card. ;-) I couldn't bear to cover it up when I was done so I tied it with this lovely silk ribbon from RockCandy Studios and I was done.

  6. Shelly, what an exciting technique. When I get a chance this is one I'm definitely going to try out.
    Beautiful job. I wouldn't cover it up either. I often feel that way about my backgrounds.
