Double Trouble – Challenge 1

There’s a new blog challenge in town and I’m super excited that I was asked to be on the Design Team from the very beginning.

Double Trouble was founded by my stamping friends Sue and Melanie and well you know me, where Trouble leads I follow!!!  We are really TWO challenges in one – an opportunity to do a simple challenge & the Double Dare to  link up to an additional  challenge with the same card, every once in a while I’ll pop in with a special “TWIST”.

Our Thing One challenge this week is to add two or more patterned papers to your project and our Double Dare is to link to the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

My card features papers from Close to My Heart’s Beautiful Friendship collection and a retired stamp set Treats of Friendship also from Close to My Heart.  I chose a small print for my all over background and a larger print (the teapots & cups) for my second piece.  It’s good to combine sizes of prints so that they don’t compete with one another.  I kept my stamping simple – just a teacup which I colored with Copic Markers and then I stamped my sentiment in Sapphire Ink and tucked the tag under my gray ribbon.  I added a couple of pearls for a simple accent.

I hope you’ll head over to the Double Trouble Blog to learn more about our challenges.  If you’re new around these parts I hope you’ll click the Follow Button where you can get updated each time I post.

Thanks for stopping by!
