A Note to Say

It's time to make a card for the new Double Trouble Challenge! Challenge #2 is ready to go on Monday, June 4, 2018. Check out this new unique and fun challenge using any maker's products regardless of your skill level. You could win a prize...

My card includes:
Thing 1 from Trouble Maker - I did not use any patterned paper.
Thing 2 from Double Dare - I am submitting the card to Three Amigos Challenge #15.
Thing 3 from Twisted Sister - I have used at least one die.

A panel of black cardstock was adhered to a white card base along with a strip of white ribbon. A smaller panel of cardstock was adhered to the black panel. The vellum was die cut to give it wavy edges and it was adhered using foam tape for dimension.

I've used this stamp set in several different ways. This time I stamped the center flower then masked it to stamp the other two images. I watercolored the flowers then fussy cut them. The sentiment was stamped and die cut and the droplets added. The inside was decorated with a coordinating floral watercolored stamp leaving sufficient space for a note.

Stop by Double Trouble's challenge blog on June 4 and consider playing along with the challenge. Look at the options to decide on how to design your own card and still be eligible to win a prize!
