Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge

Hello everyone!  Just wanted to share with you a quick challenge I did for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge.  The challenge was to make backgrounds with non-background stamps.  This is what I came up with.  Hope you like it!

It was a lot of fun to think of ways to use stamps that are not typically background stamps and use them to make the base for my card.  I used the cone stamp from the Sweet As Can Be set and made sort of a chevron pattern out of it.  I then made another piece of patterned paper using the star from the Postmarks set.  I love how this turned out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink: Sweet As Can Be, Postmarks
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Inks:  Chocolate Chip, CTMH: Barn Red, Outdoor Denim
Tools:  Big Shot, PTI By The Numbers Die, Crimper, Spiral Edge Punch
Accessories:  Ivory Paint, Wooden Star, Clear Embossing Powder, Button Twine, Versamark
