Double Time Cherry

Today's challange on the Cornish Heritage Farms Backgrounder Bitz challange thingie is to use two different backgrounders on the same card. And this is what I did:
You might not can tell but the stripe part is the notebook paper backgrounder. I colored the stripes light blue and red. I went over the red with a sharpie paint pen to add the dots. Then, of course there is the polkadot backgrounder as well. The phrase is a rub on.

If you are wondering I'm doing all these CHF challanges to force myself to use more background stamps. I really like them and think they are versatile, but I don't often remember to reach for them. Also, you might want to look at the challange galleries HERE if you are interested in more awesome cards that feature background stamps. I am finding lots of inspiration there.

supplies: all paper, cherry stamp and rub on are Stampin' Up!, both background stamps are by Cornish Heritage Farms. Black ink is Adarondiak by Ranger Red ink is Versafine. I used tombow markers to "ink" up the cherry.

Erin, I saw your card at SCS but I'll say it again. This is so fresh and pretty. And what a clever idea to use the lined notebook paper and color it.

Such a sweet card this is!
