Double D Pearls

Today starts another fabulous challenge at Double D Challenge Blog. Time to bring out the bling,and use pearls, gems or rhinestones in your project.  I needed a wedding card so I decided to use this challenge as a stepping stone for that card. I love pearls and decided that would be my gem of choice.  Take your cue from this beautiful design board. 


  I created  this easel  card for a couple who had an out door ceremony so I tried to mimic some trees and an arch. I cut an oval from the center of a blue panel and backed it with vellum, Next  I added an IO  tree frame,   I topped the entire frame with a PTI floral frame and added a Frantic Stamper bride and groom with a Sue Wilson sentiment on top. This was fun to make. I love layering. 

We hope you will join us for this challenge at Double D Challenge Blog.  Without you, we have no purpose.

Time for another fun challenge at Dies R us Challenge Blog.  Our theme this time is SPORTS. I have several gal pals who like to golf so I will use this for one of their birthdays. 

I cut and oval from a piece of blue card stock and then embossed it. I backed that with the Memory Box Golf Club Landscape and Deer Grove Oval  In front of that,  I used the grass from Paper Rose Grass and flower. A little Memory Box golf cart and the Tutti Designs golf bag completed the card.

Dies R Us Bright Colors

We have a different type of challenge at  DIES R US CHALLENGE BLOG starting today.  It is all about bright colors. My husband loves all animals but has had a special relationship with horses and all things cowboy for years so I made this for his birthday.  I sponged some card stock with distress oxide inks to make a background for the fabulous die that does all the work.  To complete the scene, I used some bird dies from Sue Wilson's Island Paradise. I know he will love this card.
