StampInsanity Challenge 9 and Release Day

Today is the release of "What the Heart Wants" and "Simply Supernatural" Sentiments by StampInsanity only available for purchase at Stamp Happens.
This is my second card as a Guest DT member for StampInsanity. This week the challenge is to create you own background paper. Well with these fabulous images it wasn't that hard for the wheels to start turning. I remembered I've been hanging on to this SU set that belongs to my friend Jill. I thought it would be perfect for the background. I stamped it several times then distressed the edges of the card stock with my scissors. Then I crinkled it up to make it look really worn, when I was satisfied I inked up the edges with a couple of shades of grey ink. I kept the layout fairly simple because I wanted as much of the background paper to show as possible.

Be sure to check out the rest of the gurlz creations.
