Twirl, Spin and Leap …

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the theme “Pink and White”. Please visit Double D Challenges  and DD_PinkandWhitesee more wonderful 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 shabby card I created my background with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie powder  – I love the shimmering effect. This panel was then lifted from the card base with mirror tape for dimension. I then added the ballerinas and embellished each of them with a little pink rose and glitter. I finished off with a stamped sentiment, pink gemstones and satin ribbon.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Butterflies

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the beautiful theme of “Butterflies”. Butterflies are always a favorite of DD_Butterfliescard-makers – maybe of their lovely colors and elegance.  The team  created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

My inspiration from the picture was the left top tile with the pink colors and flowers. The card is created for a teenager who love both pink and butterflies – thus a perfect match for this challenge. I created my background with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie powder  and layered it on pink gingham paper.  The top butterfly die cut panel was  lifted from the card base with mirror tape for dimension. I added punched butterflies, a piece of lace and cherry blossoms for more shabby detail. I finished off with a sentiment and little pink gemstones. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

Pretty Pastels

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at Double D Challenges. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the lovely theme of “Pastel Party”.  The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile. The prize to win for this challenge is a beautiful flower die and absolutely gorgeous!

I was inspired by the beautiful colors in the photo. I use a Couture Creations Intricutz die “French Bicycle” as focal point on my card. I created a  background for the bicycle with Cosmic Shimmer Pixie powder. I love the shimmer of these powders. On the photo it looks much brighter than in real life! The fun part for me is always to arrange the flowers and I really like the shabby outcome of this card. I finished off with a sentiment die cut from Impression Obsession, a little bit of glitter, bows and a few gem stones on the sentiment.

Challenges I entered:

The flowers and trellis
