Block Pattern

Hello friends,

A card to share for the new challenge at Double D Challenges. The theme from Team Darlene for our two weekly challenge this time is “Pick a Pattern” – the pattern must be DD_Patternsthe focus of your creation. Please visit the Double D Challenge blog and see the wonderful samples from Double “D”s talented designers and join in the fun!

Now onto the details of my card for this challenge. I created my card in the shabby chic style using four postage stamp “quilt” blocks as the focal point. With this layout I created a quilt pattern on the card. I used striped pattern paper for my background layer and floral designer paper for the blocks. The blocks were lifted from the base layer with mirror tape for dimension. The blocks were then decorated with small die cut hearts, a cat, die cut sentiment and a floral wreath. The final touches were paper roses and silver gemstones.  Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I also entered my card in the following challenges:

Soar …

Hello friends,

Time for a new challenge at Double D Challenges. I am joining Team Darlene for this challenge with the theme “Stripes and Dots”. Please visit the Double D Challenge blog to DD_StripesDotssee more wonderful samples from Double “D”s talented designers. We have a prize to give away to one lucky player which will be chosen by Random.org. A Top Creative Winner and Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team.

I like the black stripes and dots of the teapot and bowl from the mood board and used that as inspiration for my card. I layered the lovely stamped bird-cage on the polka dot and striped designer paper with mirror tape for dimension. I added a cute black cat and a little bird for interest. For a splash of color I embellished the card with pink roses, green leaves, gemstones and a strip of floral washi tape. I finished off with a die cut sentiment and some glitter on the roses. Hope you like my take on the challenge.

I entered my card in the following challenges:
