Parisian Lady

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Silhouettes”. To play along just use a silhouette as the focus of your project. Please visit Double D Challenges and see more DD_Silhouetteswonderful samples from our talented designers and join in the fun! We have a prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org. and a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

For my card I used designer paper with a “French” theme as background. I layered a swirly die cut oval off centre on the card to accentuate the Eiffel Tower on the designer paper. I then added a elegant die cut lady, roses, leaves and wax cord bows. I finished off with pearls, a die cut sentiment and glitter on the roses. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Silhouettes

Hello friends,

Today I am sharing a shabby card, inspired by the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme is “Silhouettes” and with such a lovely mood board from Team Darlene I decided to play along. 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 colors and children in the picture. I wanted to create something different and choose to make a shabby style card by added flowers in the colors of the sky pictured in the top left tile on the mood board. The adorable vintage image  is from Flonz Craft. I layered the silhouette image on a black background to let the flowers pop. I finished off with pieces of lace and some pink sequins. The sentiment is a Crealies text die. This card was so quick and easy to make and I love the outcome!

I entered my card in the following challenges:
