Soooo Many Backgrounders!

My challenge project today takes in several challenges in one. First, our Chick's Challenge is to use Backgrounders. CHF has a gazillion with new ones being released each month! Whew! At last count I own 44 of them! *SHOCK*

Second is my CCEE challenge I do with some friends on SCS. We got it easy today....we just had to use blue and have brads on our card.

And third, the Featured Stamper on SCS.

I chose to mask this bird from Bird Sampler and stamp Pine Needles & Cones over it, then used Copic markers to color the needles and pine cones.

The large panel is stamped with Wood Grain, one of my favorite backgrounders for sure! And one of the sentiments from Christmas Expressions.

I extended the upper left side of the branches with a fine tip pen to better fit my design. Kind of a different look for a Christmas card, but I like it!

Be sure to see how the other Chicks used Backgrounders, just click on the names.

Beautiful card Dawn. Though I have to say I especially like what you did with the backgrounders on yesterday's card!

Lovely card, Dawn! I really like how you surrounded your bird with pine boughs. Love your use of the woodgrain backgrounder, too. TFS!
