Default LSC119 - Create a Background

This is a rerun challenge from 2005.... Backgrounds.

This week, we are creating our own backgrounds using images that generally are not used as backgrounds. You can use main images, little accessory images, parts of 2-step stamping images, or even sentiments for your backgrounds.

Just for this week, please DO NOT USE the following: large or small background stamps, wheels, patterned paper, or Cuttlebug embossed backgrounds.

Stamps: See directions above
Paper & Ink: any
Embellishments: any

Keyword: LSC119

Yeah, Jen! This should be fun, but not really a challenge for me, because I often make my own backgrounds. But this is a good challenge to get me back to stamping. I haven't done a challenge since Sunday! But I was out of town... I am eager to see others' cards.

Thanks Jen for posting early. I actually get to do this before I go to bed. This one shouldn't be too hard. I make my own backgrounds all the time. The challenge for me will be not to use the Cuttlebug!

I do this a lot, so my challenge will be to not use my cuttlebug now. I'll be able to play tonight. Cool.

Oh, great challenge, I'm looking forward to this one. thanks, Jen.

Okay, here's my entry. It's late because of the unscheduled maintenance, at least I'll use that excuse. Glad to be back online though.
