Make your own background

Hi!  I wanted to share the card I made to enter in this weeks challenge at Michelle Perkett Studio.  The theme for this week is to make your own background.

Here is what I came up with...

I used Vanessa from Michelle Perkett.  Isn't she lovely?  I colored the image with Crayola colored pencils.  For the background I used my MS scoring board to make the trellis pattern on some white cs.  I used 2 Stampin Up ink spots to add some color.  The flowers and gems are from my stash.

I'm also entering this card in the following challenge...

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day.
