   The theme for this fortnight's Crafty Cardmakers challenge is 'create your own background'.
   I created my background paper by using part of the rose stamp from Carnation Crafts 'Before the Rainbow' collection and colouring it using Derwent Coloursoft pencils. I then matted and layered this onto dark and light orange card. I used the same colours for the mats and layers for the decoupaged rose flower which was cut from a downloaded vignette using a Carnation Crafts die.
