Backgrounder Blitz - Day #5 (Wednesday)

Anyone having fun with the Backgrounder Blitz? It's been SO much fun so far!

Wednesday April 23rd– Challenge #5 (BC05) – Double Time – using two or more backgrounders

I think this challenge is really an easy one. The backgrounders are so versatile and easy to combine, depending on the style your trying to create.

Something Special:

This card actually uses THREE backgrounders! See how addictive it can be!!! To create the pocket, I held a large piece of transparency on the bottom, sewed it in place, then trimmed to be the correct size. This makes it easier to adhere, since transparencies have a tendency to slide around a bit.

Be sure to stop by the CHF Gallery and Forums for more chat and inspiration!
