Happy …

Hello friends,

A card to share for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for our two weekly challenge this time is “Anything Goes With Gingham”. For more information about the challenge and the prize up for grabs visit the Double D Challenge blog and start creating – we ca dd sg3-tilewould love to see your card.

I discovered this golden oldie in my Penny Black storage box and I love the dancing cow  and chickens – they sure are so happy! It feels like ages since I last made a card with a cute image so I had a lot of fun with this one. I kept the layout  simple with two strips of pink gingham paper to frame the image. To finish off I added pink gem hearts, paper flowers, green flourishes and wax cord bows. The coloring was done with my Derwent Inktense water-color pencils.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
