Hello friends,

It is time for a new challenge at Double “D” Challenges. The theme is “Sequins” and the more the better. I am looking forward to see your “sparkly”  creations  at the Double “D” Challenge this fortnight.

For my base layer I used designer paper from Raspberry Road Designs – I so much love this color. I added a trellis die cut at the top of the card as background for the floral spray of pink and burgundy roses and bow. The elegant lady is positioned underneath the “shower” of flowers and pink and green sequins. I finished of with a little rose on her dress and a fancy script sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Christmas Time

Hello friends,

A Christmas card to share – my first one this year.  I have the honor to be a guest designer for Let’s Craft and Create Challenges today. Mary asked me to play along with the Christmas/ New Year challenge starting today on the blog. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of  this lovely challenge.

My card is created in traditional Christmas colors of green red and gold. To capture our summer Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere I used some kraft, brown and cream colors as well for a more rustic look. I layered the Christmas tree on music paper and added a bow with berries and little tags. To add a fun and festive feel to the card I used lots of red and gold stars. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

On The Farm

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a fun card, inspired by the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme is “On the Farm” and with such a lovely mood board from Diane you can create anything as long as it is farm-related. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize Ca dd sep insp1-tilevisit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your card!

I was inspired by the colors and sunflowers in the picture. The adorable scarecrow is a Cottage Cutz die I purchased a long time ago. I love to put all the bits and pieces together (also a great way to use up little scraps of paper!) and to see how the guy just pop on the card. I added a little fence, some grass and a few sunflowers to complete the card. The sentiment is from Marianne Design Creatables. I think the card will bring much joy to a little kid.

I so much love this challenge blog and always admires the lovely creations the Shabby girls showcased with each challenge – maybe this motivated me to enter the DT call with my card today.
