Double D - Things that FALL

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and our theme is:
Things that FALL

and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .

 As you may have already noticed, for my card today, I have used the same stencil as the one being offered for this challenge's prize.  Many times, when I'm purchasing prizes for our challenges, I like them so much that I'll buy one for myself ... as is the case today.

I have used a Moss Green cardstock panel as the background for my stencil vs white ... don't know why just say it laying there and thought ... Why not!  LOL

I've used a couple different TH distress oxide inks in yellow & orange for my stenciling colors.

The sentiment is a very old Tutti Designs (sorry no longer available) 'Swirly Sympathy' die.


  I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!

You'll want to be sure to pop over to the Double D Challenge Blog to see all the details and amazing samples offered up by our VERY TALENTED design team ladies!!

 Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope to see you at Double D! 

  As always . . .


  1. What a lovely card my friend! I love the background you have created and of course the sympathy die cut! Well done!

  2. Such a pretty blended background for the simple, but stately die cut sentiment. Beautifully done Dar!

  3. Love your blended leaves stencil, the colors are fabulous! This makes for a lovely sympathy card.

  4. A great subject and fun for this challenge. Your swirly sentiment is wonderful with the leaves in the background.

  5. Great card! I love all the motion this card displays....between the 'Swirly Sympathy' die and the gorgeous background you can almost feel the leaves floating by!

  6. Love that stencil, and the bold black sentiment stands out nicely against it. A beautiful sympathy card, Darlene!

  7. Beautiful card, most gorgeous design and colours xx

  8. So lovely, Darlene. The color choice for the stenciled leaves is perfect. I love the TD die cut. Simple, but elegant sympathy card.

  9. You know, I never think to use a colored card stock when I am doing stenciling, but why not. I'm going to have to remember this. Fabulous design here, you have used that stencil perfectly!!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
