Edited to add: A winner of my giveaway will be chosen by random.org on Tuesday night, 1/17, at 8 pm pacific time, and announced on my blog 1/18. Thank you, all!
Hello, and happy New Year! I hadn't planned on it, but I took a little blog break over the Christmas holiday. I'm back in time to celebrate Double D's first year anniversary, though, and I tell you, the Double D team is celebrating in style! Over on the Double D Challenge Blog there will be not one, not two, but three randomly selected prize winners. Many of the Double D teamies are handing out prizes, as well (myself included). So, let's get started, shall we?
Our challenge today is based on our anniversary theme, but we want you to know you can make anything your heart desires as long as you take your inspiration from our pretty theme board. As an example, I went with peach and creamy colors and a cake, which is clearly a birthday cake. Here's my card:
And here's our inspiration board:
Using three Tombow markers, I watercolored a whimsical Penny Black birthday cake and paired it with a Stampin' Up! sentiment that's been around a long time. Backed it with some pretty designer paper and finished off with a die cut flower and foliage. I added Platinum Stickles to the cake, as well as a few sprinkles of Stickles and Nuvo Crystal Drops around it. Stardust Stickles sparkle up the candle flame hearts. There is a full supply list at the end of this post.
Now... about the prize I'm sharing... Just leave a comment here on this post and random.org will select a winner from among them at the end of our challenge. I will ship internationally, too. Take a look:
Yes, two dies and a Power Poppy stamp set will go to one random commenter.
Be sure to visit the Double D Challenge Blog to join our celebration and get the scoop on the doin's. You'll see more prizes and samples, and I sure hope you can play along. Don't forget to pop around to all the team blogs. Leave some love and your love might make you lucky. Lucky in love? Hmmmm... Have a happy day!
