DIY DP LSC.......

I don't know about you, but that is a few to many initials for me!!LOL!! To spare you the phone call Mom, it means "do it yourself designer paper". Friday's limited supplies challenge was to make your own DP. I love it when they post the challenges early, so I got right to work. Tomorrow night is the Paper Pretties Pajama Party, so I will have some cards from that to post tomorrow night. We would love to have you join us tomorrow night for the party. It starts at 8pmEST(7pmCST) and will have a challenge posted every hour for 3hrs by Charmaine and there will be prizes!!! I wanted to do something for my SU friends, so I decided to use some SU stuff for the LSC. I started with a piece of Very Vanilla and drew my lines on it with my Pale and Perfect Plum markers. I used a ruler to keep them straight and my grid paper to keep them evenly spaced. The flower was stamped three times-once with Pale Plum craft ink, once with Perfect Plum, and once with Pale Plum and then I rolled the edges around on the Perfect Plum pad. I then embossed all three with clear embossing powder and cut them out. I used pop dots to separate the layers. I colored my hummingbird with my SU markers and then added some glitter to the belly and wings with my Sakura glitter pen, although you can't see it in the picture. I thought it was missing something, so I stamped the sentiment from the SU set Warm Words and then added pewter brads to all the corners. That's it for me now!! Hope you have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!! BTW, the storms weren't nearly as bad here as they predicted, thank goodness, but thanks for all the concern!!
