Today sees a new challenge starting over on Cute Card Thursday.  For Challenge #176 we are asked to create our own backgrounds and not use any designer papers on our projects.  This week's prize is sponsored by The Stamp Shoppe.

For my DT card this week I decided to use a sweet digi image - 'Grace Standing' - from Sugar Nellie.  I coloured her with Copics and added some Glossy Accents to her hair ribbons, buttons and sandals.  I added the image over a layer of plum coloured card to pick up the shades used on the image.

I kept my design very simple, using a C6 deckle edge base card on to which I stamped the pretty hearts from a Nit Wit Collection set of stamps, then coloured the tiny hearts with a Copic to match the colours I used on the image.   No flowers, swirls or bling from me this week, sometimes it's nice not to include lots of embelishments and just let the image take centre stage.  I hope you like today's card.

I look forward to seeing your entries for the challenge this week.  Happy Crafting !
