A Sweet Note

Hello friends,

A new challenge starts today at the Double D Challenge blog. Team Diane is hosting this challenge with the theme “Let’s Make Some Music”. Please visit Double D Challenges and DD_Musicsee 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 card I used a vintage printable as background. This lovely printable was layered on black cardstock to match the black die cut music notes. I then added a die cut lady,  some flowers, leaves and wax cord bows. I finished off with a stamped sentiment on a die cut tag and glitter on the roses. A few pearls were the final touches. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge at Double D Challenges. I am joining Team Darlene for this fortnight’s challenge with the theme “Sentiment/Quote”. Looking at the mood board it is all about feeling sentimental. Please visit the Double D challenge blog and see more wonderful samples from Double “D”s talented designers and join in the fun!

I was inspired by the white, black and grayish colors in the photo. I used Prima “Stationer’s Desk” designer paper for the background. I layered a black fishing net die cut on the background paper to accentuate my sentiment and flowers. I finished off with a wax cord bow, some silver gemstones, glitter on the flowers and a swallow.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
