Challenge card

This card came about because of a new challenge blog and a nice card sketch. I love it when you can multi-task! The inaugural  Double Trouble Challenge is to use 2 or more pattern papers. I'm also using sketch 338 from Freshly Made Sketches. 

The colors from Beautiful Friendship are so pretty  and seemed a good choice for this challenge. I've used a total of 4 paper patterns on this card. Can you find them all? Three are from papers and one is a Zip Border. I also added some glitz with the flowers to sparkle them up.

Be sure to check out both blogs and join the fun!

    1. Thanks, Marie. I did enter my card in Double Trouble. I don't see any of the link up until I linked mine, then they don't show up after that point. Hmmmmm.

  3. Yes I see your four design papers which means you have doubled Double Trouble's Challenge...great job, and like that you shared it with the sketch challenge. Beautiful card. You and Marie always photo your shimmer so well...what's the trick. Michelle thank you so much for your support and sharing this with DOUBLE TROUBLE and hope you will share other projects with us in our future challenges...who knows Thing 2 may be peeking around the corner at Color Dare.
