Hello friends,

It is Double D Challenges 3rd anniversary and to celebrate we have a beautiful mood board to inspire you. The theme is “It’s On the Menu”. We are celebrating, so we want you DD_Menuto use anything you might find on a menu – cakes, coffee, tea, ice cream, fruit … anything! All the details about the prizes are on the Double D Challenge blog.

The celebration prize I have to offer is a $10 gift certificate from 123 Stitch.com online store. To stand a chance to win the prize just linked  your project to the Double D challenge blog. I will randomly  draw  a name from the entries on the Double D Challenge blog and the lucky winner will be announced on the winner’s post published on January 15, 2019.

For my card to celebrate the Double D Anniversary I decided to choose a yummy parfait and a glass of lemonade. After coloring the bits and pieces and gluing it together, I layered the die cuts on pink gingham paper for a happy feel. I added a bold sentiment, piece of lace, bows and gemstones to finish off.

I also entered my card in the following challenges:

    Such an adorable card. I love the die cuts, and the way you have “grounded” them on the lace. And then that sweet gingham background paper is so perfect. You have colored the drinks beautifully too. I just like everything about this card!
