It's time once again for a new challenge at the Double D Challenge Blog and, it's another fun theme chosen by Diane ... also check out the amazing mood board she has designed to inspire you!
Our theme is: USE YOUR SCRAPS
This will be fun because if you're anything like me, you have plenty of scraps on your work table to create with. It's amazing how quickly you can whip up a card just by using what you already have sitting around.
Here's the mood board Diane has created . . .
And, here's what I've created using some bits 'n bobs that were on my work table, discarded from other projects and begging for some love.
This was the last background panel (just had enough) from a 12x12 sheet and the purple panel was a scrap that I simply fancied up the edge with an OLD Martha Stewart punch. This cute little Wild Rose Studio stamped image (one of three I had stamped awhile back and had extra) was just sitting there waiting for some coloring love so I tried to match up the flower as best I could to go with my papers. The sentiment circle was sitting on a different table but I thought would work perfectly ... just needed a little touch of color so grabbed a coordinating Nuvo Crystal Drops bottle ... VIOLA!
OH yea ... I also rounded the edges of my image using an old Creative Memories corner rounder punch ... matted in black then edged punched that panel also. CUTE!
Diane has this fabulous prize offered to one lucky winner.
But, you have to play to win!!

The little elephant makes me smile and lifts my spirits,and I need that lift. I think as card makers we underestimate what we do to create something uplifting that will brighten a day which is so needed in this troubled time.By the way, great design and use of scraps.ReplyDelete
Sometimes our best projects come from leftover pieces of other creations. This card is simply adorable and I love the cute little elephant! Have a lovely rest of the week!ReplyDelete
This is so cute Darlene! Oh my word, that elephant's little face couldn't be more adorable. This is so sweet in purples!ReplyDelete

It's so much fun to dig into your scraps and see what you can come up with. Even more fun when it's a challenge. Love the idea! I hope to play if time doesn't speed by too fast. Just look how adorable your little ellie is and how beautifully you put together your scraps. Love this, Darlene!ReplyDelete
