Create Your Own Background for Make My Monday

Evening Everyone
Well that will teach me won't it!!
Don't mention the weather cause that is bound to make it change. Not quite snow, thank goodness, but still cold and wet.
My card today has been made to enter into the challenge over at Make My Monday where they are looking for you to 'Create Your Own Background'
Now this was not hard for me as that has to be one of my favourite things to do, after heat embossing that is.
The background has actually been made using a technique that I found on another of the blogs that I follow Technique Time Tuesday.
My lovely Crafty friend Mynnette showed how to make your own inkpad using a baby wipe and some reinkers.
I couldn't quite get mine to look like those that Mynnette and her team created but I did end up with several very usable pieces of artwork, one of which I have used here.
In fact I can't have done too bad a job with my original as it came in the Top 5.
I would also like to enter this into the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday where they are looking for 'Something Borrowed'.
I certainly borrowed the idea for the background from Mynnette, and this card uses similar colours to my original (is that CASE?) so I hope that it counts.
Off to bed now, although after my 'granny nap' this afternoon I might take a while to get to sleep.
