Hello everyone....it's my turn to host this weeks Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast and my challenge to you is to *angle the background*!! I just love the look of an angled background...here are the deets:

1. Cut two pieces of designer paper...you can use the same paper or two different sheets. I cut mine 4" x 5 1/4"
2. Stack them with right sides up ( you can use landscape or portrait) and cut your angle with a paper cutter.
3. You can make one side bigger than the other or try to make the top and bottom the same size...what ever flips your skirt!!
4. Now, adhere to your card base or another piece of card stock to create your background layer.
5. You can also just use one of the halves and let the card stock be the other half.

For my card, I used just the bottom half of the Teresa Collins paper and added the Memory Box diecut sentiment. The flags were cut by hand and the star border and flower both from Teresa Collins were added along with the twine. The angled layer was adhered to the Bashful Blue card base with foam tape.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can join us for this weeks TLC challenge on Splitcoast Stampers!!!
