Hello Friends!! Well it is Tuesday and time for another fun challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.  

 This week's challenge is: Create your own Background  (Create your own background with stamps or embossing- no designer paper)

Here is my creation using Candy Cane and Jesus is the Reason. The shape uses Grand Labels 23 from Spellbinders.  The sentiment is framed with Gold Labels 4.

I stamped the small candy cane from Jesus is the Reason several times to create my background.

Oh, my, Chris! This is gorgeous and fabulous! I LOVE how you've created the background with the bitty candy canes! It's so wonderful, and I love the die shapes you've used. The red and white with the little canes at your "signature" bow all make for a gorgeous card! Sweet hugs, friend!
