HIMCR-39 Hello There

Its Saturday, The hubby, Liana, and I are planning a trip to Tacoma, Washington. I hear they have a lot more then Bremerton. My hubby went with his boss last week and saw this restaurant he wanted us to try and a little site seeing. So that’s what I have planned today.

 With all that said its Saturday and it’s time for another HIMCR Challenge. This challenge is all about Ugly Paper. That’s right we had to use our Ugly Paper boy was this something. I found four ugly papers that I didn’t like. The paper I am using looks like it glows in the dark. LOL! Do you see all those lines everywhere and the only pretty color is the pink.

I wanted to show you all the other ugly papers. The black paper have too much going on. And do you see the flower paper that looks camouflage. Tee Hee!

Here is my card:
Here are the tools I used: Ink: Jenni Bowlin: No.7 Seed Packet, Dies: Memory Box: Pastry Labels, Gems: Studio G, Cricut: Pagoda, Cardstock: PTI

I must say after picking my paper and adding a few layers, flowers, bling and sentiment made this paper look its best.

Great card you made with your 'ugly' paper! There's nothing wrong with it!

You asked me about the sticker I used on the (almost) white Christmas card. It's a sticker from Starform (# 967). DCP (I don't know what the abbreviation means) is the cardstock I used in combination with my Copic markers.
I don't know is Starform stickers are sold worldwide. Also I bought them many years ago.
Thanks for your compliment,
