Double D Challenge: The Moon and the Stars

It's the third Wednesday of the month and that means it's time to pop in with another Double D challenge.  This time we're doing The Moon and the Stars.  Well, that worked out just fine for me because I had a not-yet-used stamp that fit the mood board perfectly.




Check out the mood board -- lower left with the moon hanging over the water.  Reminds me of camping, sigh... wish I was there.




Creative winners are voted on by the team, plus there's a random prize.  This Filigree Moon die set will make some mighty pretty cards:




The sentiments/quotes in this set are what caused it to jump into my basket.  I've used them on other cards, but first time for the raccoon in the moonlight scene.  Now that I've colored it, I think it's pretty cute.  My card is rather masculine in appearance, yet if the look of it appeals to me, would it not appeal to another female, as well?  I hope so because it will probably go to a girlfriend.




The stamp set is Inky Antic's Moonlight Raccoon, and the designer paper is Bo Bunny Camp-a-Lot.  I pieced and stitched some scraps and added Bo Bunny Matte Sprinkles to the finished card.  Coloring was done with Copics.

I just know you have a card idea that would be great for our Moon and Stars challenge.  Play along with us!

I'm glad you could stop by.  I'll be back on Friday with flowers.  See you soon!

I'm in love with this card! That little raccoon is just adorable and love the moon background! That sentiment is awesome as well! You always have the best sentiments! This little guy reminds me of the raccoon I had at my feeder! I've had to resort to taking the feeders down at night because he was robbing them blind! ha ha

So much outdoor beauty in your gorgeous Moon scape card design, Leslie. We can't wait for our Fall camping trip either, but still lots of gardening and harvesting to do. TFS your amazing card, my friend. Hugs

Fabulous, Leslie! That is a darling stamp with the racoon. And, that sentiment is just so awesome. I love it!!

And I forgot to mention the stitching around the outside! Looks amazing...

Pauline said...

Fabulous card Leslie! What a great image for this challenge. You have created an awesome scene. I could see me sitting along the edge of the water on a log gazing into the moonlight. Once you get a taste of the outdoors it's like you can't get enough and you want to go, go all the time, at least that is how I am about traveling up north. I just wish we lived closer to be able to enjoy that outdoor vastness more often. It's amazing, and I know you agree! The sentiment is so perfect as well. Love this. TFS, Hugs,

Oh my goodness your little moonlight scene is just too adorable, I like how it is cut out and pretty papers to go with it. I would love this card but I know it would be great for a guy too, love those cards that are ok for either :) Like all the stitching you have done on it too, great summer time scene!

Barbara said...

This scene is alluring and I love the masculine look, but that sentiment is surely feminine.

Cindy Beach said...

Seriously Leslie, this card is gorgeous, this little moon lit scene looks so amazing and all of the beautiful details you added, like the awesome DSP and your impeccable stitching just completes this card perfectly.
The sentiment fits your sweet card beautifully.
Thank you for sharing.

What a unique card you created with the paper, sentiment and the scene you set up! I just love the raccoon looking at the moon. And of course the stitching just finshes the card off!

Traci M said...

Such a fun nature scene...I’m in awe of all the papers and patterns you’ve used, too!! So glad you get to enjoy the outdoors with your new RV and I’m enjoying all your photos. I’m a female and this card definitely appeals to me, too! TFS!
