A Pop of Color

Hello friends,

Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D Challenges with the theme “Black and White with a Pop of Color”. I am joining Team Darlene for this fun challenge. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your card!

I was inspired by the yellow sunflower in the photo. My card is in the clean and simple style and really easy to make. I used two strips of washi tape on the background layer to add interest to the card. I stamped the image and color the daisy in bright yellow and then lifted the top panel from the card base with mirror tape. I finished off with a black die cut sentiment and glitter on the flowers. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Hello dear blog friends,

Usually I do shabby/vintage designs but change is sometimes as good as a holiday, so I did another CAS card today. For the 365 Cards Challenge I used brown, birds and branches to do the challenge of three B’s. The CAS[E] This Sketch  this week is another beautiful design. For my card I flipped the sketch to the right to suit the stamp. I chose a Crafty Individuals stamp to do a masculine card, a theme I always neglected. It started as a one layer card but after a little bit of thinking I decided to pop a part of the image with a little tag to give a bit of dimension. This was such a quick card I think I will duplicate a few more in various colours and with different sentiments to keep at hand in case of emergency occasions.


 Here is my take on the challenges:
