Cute card thursday ~ No patterned paper

The challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is No patterned paper!
What this means is you can't use any bought patterned paper but feel free to make your own using stamps, inking, doodling etc.
I had great fun making some patterned cardstock, I used my Basic Grey Wintertime stamp set to make this flourishes pattern on some textured cardstock. I also added some inking to the edges.
I used more of my bits and pieces sent to me by Camilla, I have so enjoyed using these I cannot thank Camilla enough for these fabulous goodies! If you would like to win some of these gorgeous embellishments pop over and enter into Camilla's blog candy draw, she has a fab
sketch for you to use.
This week we have another fabulous sponsor, Maggie of Banyan Craft is donating some
gorgeous tear shaped card blanks for one lucky winner to be chosen at random next week!
The rest of the design team have come up with some fabulous ideas for this challenge, all amazing cards do pop over and take a peek!

Supplies: Tools ~ sewing machine, cuttlebug, nestabilities
Cardstock ~ dark brown, cream textured, DCWV white core cardstock
Stamps ~ Sarah Kay, Basic Grey, Autumn Leaves
Embellishments ~ flowers, spacers and charms in RAK from Camilla
