SCS Variety Challenge 196 - Think Grow Learn

Once again it's Variety Challenge time for Splitcoast Stampers. Starting this month, the challenge will only be posted on the second Wednesday of the month, which means you have a whole month to play with the challenge before I post a new one. Please join in by clicking on the link below!

SBVC196 - Die-Cut Backgrounds
It seems like everyone has a die-cut machine these days, so put yours to use by creating a die-cut background for your layout! It can be made of a single piece laid over cardstock or patterned paper, or you can combine several die-cuts to get the look you want.

I cut a bunch of shapes using my new Cricut Artbooking cartridge, and then used some as background and others as embellishments.
Kraft, Sunset, Barn Red, Cocoa, Honey & White Daisy cardstock
Sunset Baker's Twine
My Crush Besties Assortment
Milepost Shapes
Cricut Artbooking cartridge: all die-cut shapes
Pattern: Let's Scrap 9-4-13 (heavily modified!)
Challenges: Rose Blossom Garden School Theme,  CAS-ual Fridays Back to School, Frosted Designs Numbers, Heart 2 Heart Brown paper packages tied up with strings, Scrap It Girl Back to School
