Celebrating our 1st Anniversary at Double D Challenges!!

WOW!  Can you believe it???
Double D Challenge Blog is celebrating it's FIRST ANNIVERSARY!

As I'm sure you already know, I am one of the D's in Double D ... the other D is my BFF Diane Hover (Nellie's Nest)!  She and I tossed around the idea of starting our own challenge blog late in the year of 2015 ... we thought it would be great fun so we quickly pulled it all together.  We were so fortunate enough to gather an amazing team of designers and Diane's idea of the mood boards has been very well received (she's so dang smart!).  Now here we are a year later and still having wonderful fun and being continually inspired by our fabulously talented team members!
We also have YOU to thank for this success!!

SO ... we've decided to have a little celebration and offer ADDITIONAL PRIZES for both January challenges.  You will want to be sure to pop over to the DD BLOG for ALL the details (some of the DT ladies are offering prizes too ... WOW how generous is that)!

Today's theme is:

ANNIVERSARY/BLOGAVERSARY/BIRTHDAY

Anything you want as long as you use something in/on
our mood board to inspire you.
 
 I was inspired by the number 1 and the peachy colored flowers.  


The card is actually a 'softer' peachy tone than you see in my photo but you get the idea.  
I have used a combination of very old goodies and some very new goodies on today's card.  The designer paper is from Graphic45 'Secret Garden'  6x6 pack.  The reverse side of the strip I cut off for my background panel was used to die cut my lacy panel ... love when you can do that!  You will also notice that I've created the illusion of a silver/gray mat by edging my background panel using a silver Pilot Marker. 

Ok so here's a peek at the prizes available at the challenge blog (remember some of the DT members are offering prizes on their blogs too!) ...
