Something New!

The Monday challenge at Double Trouble #46 falls on the fifth Monday of the month so lasts only one week, from Monday, December 30, 2019, and ending Sunday, January 5, 2020. As usual, our "Fifth Monday" Challenges are a SomeThing, AnyThing, EveryThing theme. Here are the requirements:

Troublemaker says Thing 1 is required and requires you to make something new. Easy enough!

Double Dare says Thing 2 is optional but if you participate by linking up with one of previous challenge partners you receive an additional chance in the random draw. (A list is available at the Double Trouble Blog.)

Twisted Sister says Thing 3 is optional but if you add her twist to your project, you will receive an additional chance in the random draw. Her twist is to use something new you received in your stocking or under the tree OR create a card celebrating something new (new baby, new year, new home, etc.)


I decided to do something celebrating a new baby. I found this digital image so downloaded, resized, printed and colored it. The image was backed with black card stock and then added to a die cut panel. This scalloped panel was adhered to a white card base, cut slightly smaller so it is not visible through the eyelets in the scallops. The inside was decorated with the bluebird image from the original digital file. In order to meet Double Dare's requirement, I entered this card at the Anything Goes challenge at Brown Sugar Challenge #296

We hope you'll join us at both Brown Sugar #296 and Double Trouble #46!
