Polished Stone Winter Girl

Hi friends!  I am the guest hostess over on the Rogue Redhead Designs blog today as we unveil the March challenge for the Holiday Inspiration Club.  This month I'm asking you to make your own backgrounds for your holiday cards.

You can make any kind of background.  Try a new technique, stamp with a background stamp, arrange designer papers into a pattern, whatever you come up with!  I've got four cards over on the Rogue Redhead Designs blog, each with a different background, so check them out and let them inspire you.  I'll share all of those cards here on my blog throughout the month.

For my card today, I used the Polished Stone background from Technique Junkies and the sweet little girl from the Winter Women stamp set (Rogue Redhead Designs).  I love this polished stone background - it's so silvery and shiny when I move it around in the light.  I love the pale blue, dark blue, and silver colors and how the veining really does look like a polished rock.  I kept the card clean and simple so the background would shine through and so this would be a flat and mail-able card.

Come and play along in this challenge!  You can make any kind of holiday card - Christmas, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, whatever you want.  If you have any Rogue Redhead Designs stamps, we'd love to see what you create with them, but you are not required to use them for this challenge.  :-)
