Speedy Fox - No Designer Paper

The Speedy Fox challenge is to use no designer paper.    No designer paper, how do I make a card without it?   I decided using Mark's Finest Paper "Tiger Lilly" stamps would be a start.  I then picked my papers with colors that would go with my colored image.   Now it gets tough, trying to figure out a background without using designer paper.  I decided to use a stencil and sponge with the colors of the card stock.  I really am pleased with the background.   This is a good technique to use when we do not have any matching designer paper, too.   I run into that  problem quite often.   I will do this technique again.

Thanks, for stopping by today.
