Sweet Stamps- No Designer Paper

It's time for the Tuesday challenge at Sweet Stamps .  Our challenge theme for this week is, 'No Designer Paper'.
 I used a technique called Build a Background from the April/May '14 Technique Junkies newsletter. I used 'springy' colors for the Creative Corners image- and I used the medium sized stamp in this set.I added a layer of Vellum over the top to soften the background. I stamped the three butterflies on Vellum and then on white card stock-which were fussy cut out. I just applied glue to the center of the butterflies- lots of dimension!
 The Creative Corners stamps are new in the store- HERE is the link to the entire line. Each set of images comes in a set of three clear stamps- a small, a medium and a large image.

Here are the supplies I used on this card:

 I hope you will join in the challenge! Every entry qualifies you for a chance to win $20 of items from the store at Sweet Stamps, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! The winner is chosen by so everyone has a chance to win!
