Lasting Memories Challenge #42 Make your own Background


This week over at Lasting Memories the challenge is to make your own background. I happened to be playing the other day with the Twinkle Toes Cartridge and cut a BUNCH of frames out. When I pulled the paper off I realized I had an AWESOME background, all I had to do was lay it on my white cardstock and spray with some Glimmer Mist! So, this came together pretty easy, and there are SO MANY ways you can make your own background!

Here is my take:
a close up of my swirls and flower:
another flower, LOVE the stickles on the edges of the petals:
I used:
Twinkle Toes Cartridge for the background.
Home Decor for the swirls and flowers, I cut the flower apart and then pieced it back together.
I also used Liquid Pearls and Stickles.
The Lace and buttons are from my stash.
Happy Birthday is from DCWV.

Thanks BUNCHES for stopping by and taking a look! I hope you play along this week with us over at Lasting Memories!
