Today’s card is very clean and simple! It pulls together several little challenges in it and it’s probably not a card I would have normally made! But there is a super fun challenge blog that you’ve got to try out. I have fun every time I play along! It’s “Double Trouble”. There’s 3 different little options to take and sometimes it is especially fun to try them all! I used the Case This Sketch layout #363 challenge for my starting idea and went from there with the Double Trouble prompts
And then Double Trouble Thing One says “Include at least one Spring item on your project made with punches, dies, cutting machines and even fussy-cutting”
This cute little spring flower comes from an old Sizzix/Hero Arts stamp and die set called “Garden Flowers”. I haven’t used it in forever!! But the reason I pulled it out for this challenge is because of what the Double Trouble Thing 3 says! “…include a bee, the makers of honey, or their honeycombs”
I realized, as I looked through my collection, that I have very minimal bee stamps! But it’s good because it meant that this one got some love 😉
So with those challenges put together, I ended with this sweet and simple card. The coloring is done with alcohol markers, even the strip on the right side. I did an ombre effect with the same colors I did the leaves with. And the “Hello Fabulous” sentiment comes from a Catherine Pooler set
That is my card for today! I’ll be back tomorrow with another clean and simple card.
