To kick off the celebration we're asking for anything birthday or anniversary-themed using the inspiration board as a guide.
Visit the Double D Blog to see prizes.
I'm offering a prize today, too. PLAY THE CHALLENGE TO WIN. See the end of this post.
Many of my Double D teamies are offering prizes today, so be sure and visit everyone to see their stipulations.
All our participants have made this a very successful and fun challenge for us. Of course, Diane and Darlene, the Double D originators/administrators, deserve tons of credit and thanks and love. After all, they're the ones who provide us with fabulous inspiration boards such as this:
Cute stuff there! I especially love the birthday cake and I had a whole card made up with a starry cupcake and striped candles, all in colors matching the cake in the inspiration board... and then I made a hideous card with it. Seriously. Hideous. I was so disappointed I didn't want to start all over with the cupcake so I went in an entirely different direction.
I was happy to have finally gotten the kick in the pants I needed to color this very detailed and, oh, so pretty butterfly from my Penny Black "Touch of Whimsy" set.
I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copics. Stamped several smaller images from the set, as well, but didn't want it to look too busy so I used them sparingly and left a lot of white.
Finished with ribbon and a Tutti Designs Butterfly Strip. The Butterfly Strip was cut in white and colored with a B02 Copic marker.
READY FOR A PRIZE NOW?
Since it's a birthday party, I have a cute little birthday mini-stamp set and a perky pad of paper which I thought coordinated nicely with it.
I'm sharing the love with our Double D challenge participants. At the end of our current birthday/anniversary challenge I'll let Random.org select a winner from among everyone who plays along.
I hope you can join us. Have fun!
