All the Trimmings Card ~ Double Trouble Challenge

  I was asked to be a Guest Designer or Crazy Cousin as they are known at Double Trouble for this challenge. I felt honored and said an immediate yes! This is a fun challenge and I know you'll want to play along, too.

Here is information on the challenge.....

Thing 1: Trouble Maker: Select a direction in the grid to get started. Row, column or diagonal. After that if you want to include other squares on the grid you can.

Thing 3: Twisted Sister: Create a project with a greeting or sentiment. It can be any sentiment but you may want to use the partner's optional sentiments of Give Thanks/Thankful/Grateful.  

Thing 2: Double Dare: There is a special link with another challenge if you fit their requirements. Prizes are involved.

Ok so my direction started with the left column but by the time I was finished with my card I used all the  squares and I love how it turned out! I used TriBlend Markers to color the images. With three shades of color in each marker it's easy to blend and create depth. The plaid paper is embossed but hard to see in the photo. It was a fun card to make and I hope you like it.

  1. Fantastic coloring and beautiful layout... love the choice of the design papers. Beautiful card.

  2. I love your card! I also love how you show a picture of the stamp set with the dies. It's always so fun to see since I don't have anything Close to my Heart! :)

Fun Cards!

I've been having so much fun with the Spotlight on Nature stamp set and Dies I just had to share my 2 latest cards. Both cards were easy...
