Speedy the Cat Challenge #76

Welcome Weekend!!
This week for the Speedy the Cat Challenge Blog I challenged us to create "without using designer paper"!!!

EEKS - are you kidding me!! WHAT was I thinking...I HAVE to use designer paper...I mean that's why I have TONS of it...made a promise to myself that I cannot buy any more paper until I use up half of what I already have...(SO I wont be buying any new paper for a couple years LOL !!!) but we need to be challenged to think outside the box, right ?

soooo, i used some slim scraps and weaved a square, used a piece of plain cardstock and ran through the cuttlebug, and paper pieced my images from MFP's stamp set Autumn Glory...love working with this set!

added white pen dots, colored with Ranger's Distress Inks using nib (Mustard, Mahogany, Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge) sentiment is Memento's Paris Dusk.
added stash ribbon, matted onto MFP's Evergreen cardstock matted onto White base.

Hope you get to join us and pop over and check out the rest of the Design Team's inspiration
hugs
