Can you go without ?

Without Designer Paper, that is!   That's the new challenge over at CES this week.   So, step away from your new stacks of DP and show us what you can come up with.

This really was a challenge for me  - and I racked my brains to come up with something. In the end, I made my own DP with a little heart stamp - something I have NEVER done before - so I was pretty pleased with the result.
I also added a little bit of glitter, but the light is so bad right now, it's not really picking it up.

The Catslife Press Birthday Stamp and  Card Candy are available from Crafty Emma's Store   Check out the fab range of other goodies that Emma sells and, if you're looking for Wedding supplies, Emma has just opened her Wedding Shop with lots of gorgeous stationery for your special day.

The heart stamp was from the Stampin' Up set, 'Doodle That' - inked with Papermania pink ink.  Ribbon from my stash.

p.s you asked what I use to stick glitter, I found the artquest embellishing adhesive to be the best but I suspect it is just a watered down pva glue. For the diamond dust I use glossy accents :-) xx
