Sparkle …

Hello friends,

A card to share for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for our  challenge this time is “Pearls, Gems or Rhinestones”. Please visit the Double D Challenge DD_Pearls, Gems & Diamondsblog and see the 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. while a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

I used the green and pink colors from the inspiration collage to create a  quick and easy card for this challenge. I used a pretty fairy die cut as my focal point layered on a piece of designer paper. I framed the image and layered it again on designer background paper.  The fun part was to glue all the little gemstones and hearts  randomly on the card to give a magical feel. I finished of with a die cut sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Twine

Hello friends,

Today’s creation is a masculine card inspired by the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme for this challenge is “Twine” but hemp cord and jewelry cord will also be acceptable. For more information about the challenge and the lovely prize visit the Double D Challenge blog. Looking forward to see your card!

I created my card in the vintage style using a vintage car die cut as focal point. I created the background with a Tim Holtz layering stencil and distress ink. I added a few strands of twine and a tree branch for interest. As this card is for my hubby’s birthday I finish off  by adding a little red heart hanging from the tree. The top panel was  lifted from the card base with mirror tape for dimension. I finished off with a die cut sentiment.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
