Leaves

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog . Team Darlene is hosting this challenge with the lovely theme of “LEAVE it to me!”. Looking at the beautiful inspiration picture I decided to join in the fun. The team have created beautiful cards to inspire you – a visit to the Double D Challenge blog will be worthwhile.

I love to make cards with autumn colors and was inspired by the beautiful leaves as well as the colors in the picture.  I used script designer paper for my background and to give the idea of movement I also cut some swirls into the background paper. The leaves are colored with distress inks which is the adhered with mirror tape for dimension. To finish off I added a wax cord bow, some black pearls and a swirly sentiment.

Challenges:

Things That Fly

Hello friends,

I hope you are all doing well. Today’s post is about the new challenge at Double D Challenges with the theme “Things that fly”. 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 colors, lovely kite and white clouds in the photo. I used two layers of  colorful background paper to create a cheerful feeling to the card. I added the kite and embellished it with little roses and a gemstone. To give the feeling of movement some puffy clouds were added. I finished off with a bright red bow, more blue gemstones, a yellow button heart and a bold sentiment. For the list of dies used, please scroll down to the bottom of my photos. Hope you like my take on the challenge.
