Using the Ugly Papers

Hello.  Welcome.  I have been playing along at the Case the DT challenge at Coffee Loving Cardmakers.  This month there are 8 cards to case and I immediately had a few ideas for different cards.  I thought I'd start with Terri's pretty bright striped cup.  I decided to try stamping on ugly papers.  What's that you say?  Well, we all have papers too pretty to use and occasionally we also end up with some that are too ugly to use!!  I have a few relegated to this category and decide they might be suitable for this project.  And Lo! mayhaps they have become beautiful after all........

The tea cup and sentiment are from Stamplorations Always Tea Time.  I stamped and embossed the cup on my patterned paper and on white card and pieced them together.  I cut a panel from the patterned paper and kraft using a Crafts Too scalloped square die.  I stamped and embossed the sentiment and then embossed the panel with Sizzix spiral dots embossing folder.   The card base is Bazzill.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
