Week 146 Theme

Use Designer Paper in a CAS Way
There's a tendency to forget about Designer Paper when creating Clean and Simple cards, but there is a variety of ways in which it can be used... without covering large areas of the card base.
Let's see what you can come up with!
Here I simply chose to stamp onto some DP for both the image itself and the leaves, both stamps are by Jo Firth-Young.
The baubles or berries have been glazed but I'm afraid it's not apparent from this picture. IRL they are lovely and shiny!
The sentiment was cut on my Silhouette using CBGB Font.

This one incorporates DP for paper piecing, as a background mat and also for the sentiment...again cut with my Silhouette using the font CK_Alis_Hand_Official. There's another example card on my blog. I'm delighted when you come to visit me there too, thank you everyone, especially those who kindly leave a comment!

I'm in sunny Egypt this week so just one card to share with you... and it's using a fabulous Sneak Peek from a regular sponsor, Lili Of The Valley. These cute baby images are out later this month.

I've simply coloured the little one in with stampin write markers and cut him out.  A strip of designer paper from Stampin Up has been stitched and lay over a whisper white background.  The sentiment is also from LOTV.
I'll be back in the UK later in the week so cannot wait to see how you interpret this challenge.

We hope you'll have lots of fun with this one!
