Winter Time …

Hello friends,

Time for our second challenge at Double D Challenges. I am joining Team Darlene for this fortnight’s challenge with the theme “Brrr! Winter” The inspiration board (see bottom of my post) is so beautiful it inspired me to created a card. Please visit the Double D challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from Team Darlene’s talented designers and join in the fun!

I was inspired by the trees, birds and the brown, white and red colors in the photo. I used an Impression Obsession “wood texture” stamp for the background. I kept the card simple by adding a branch and red bird layered on a white oval as focus point. “Snowflakes” in the form of pearls were added to complete the winter scene. The sentiment was cut with a Marianne Design Creatables die.

Challenges:

    Amelia – this is a beautiful & elegant project! I love the woodgrain background, the die you chose for the bird is lovely and the pearls falling across the scene make it so elegant! The distressing on your layers adds a lot of texture & a vintage feel. Really creatively done! Thank you for sharing your project and creativity and for playing the twist at 613 Ave C!
