Hi everyone :) First I want to say thank you for all your supports. I didn't expect that I would be one of the TOP 15. It's all because of your supports and encouragement.
I'm very grateful from the bottom of my heart :)

I'm so happy making card for this Round 3. The theme is "Make Your Own Stamped Background".
I made a tutorial about my here it is:

STEP 1 : I stamped my HERO ARTS STUDIO CALICO stamp " ST503 Grid Pattern" on Neenah Paper using Versamark. add Hero Arts White Embossing Powder dan heat gun it.
I LOVEEE  this embossing's so detailed and the quality so good!!

STEP 2 : I cut it into square

STEP 3 : I choose the color from my Copic. I choose some pastel colors, it is R20, BG11, Y23, E000


STEP 4: I colored it

STEP 5: I glue it into paper. To have precision in your pattern, you can add some grid using ruler and pencil, after all is finished you can just erase it :)

STEP 6 : After all been glued, you can cut it and there's my background!!! Add sentiment from Wplus9 stamp " Shine Bright Like A Diamond". I think the sentiment is perfect for this card. I add gems in the center of the square....and my card is finished :)


So here it is my final card also a tag :
