No Designer Paper?!

I'm popping in with a card for this weeks Sweet Stampin' challenge, made for hubby's birthday.  This week we are challenging you to make a card without using designer paper.  I decided to go the route of sponging, masking & blending using inks from SU & TH, trees from Stampin' Up's Lovely as a Tree and birds from Verve. 

We're sponsored by the very lovely Emma at Flat Friends so why don't you come & show us your no dp creations.

Joining in with the following fabulous challenges:

Amusing Challenges - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + Sentiment
Fashionable Stamping - All about the Men
Papertake Weekly - Not Square
Simply Papercrafts - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

The Genius (Occasionally!) xx
