Craft Mad & Loving It! Challenge #4

This week over on Craft Mad & Loving It! we've got Cherry as GDT and she's provided a lovely sketch for everyone to work with and her twist is to have a go at making your own backing papers.
Here's Cherry's sketchAnd here's my DT card.For my backing paper, I crumpled a piece of paper up a couple of times, flattened it out then rubbed over it with a distress ink, then I ironed it out. The image is one of the new Christmas stamps from Lili of the Valley, and she's coloured with ProMarkers. The snowflakes were cut using a spellbinders die.
