Coloring Fun

It's the fifth Monday in March and that calls for a special event at Double Trouble Challenge Blog! While we always have a biweekly challenge beginning on the first and third Mondays of each month, when there is a fifth Monday in the month, we enjoy having a one-week challenge themed as "Something, Anything, Everything". 

As usual, there are three "Things":
Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker has set the theme as indicated above, which is Anything Goes.
Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare encourages you to link your project to any previous partner.
Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister hopes you'll demonstrate your coloring skills with any medium.

This challenge begins on Monday, March 29, ending on Sunday evening, April 4, 2021. Check out our Challenge Blog for guidelines and specific information.

For my project, I adhered some die-cut rectangles cut from pink cardstock and silver foiled cardstock to a pastel card base. I stamped and colored an image then fussy cut it and adhered it with foam tape. I finished it off with some tiny silver pearls in the centers of the roses. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock, also die-cut to match the front panels. I added some additional stamped and colored elements for decoration. The sentiment will be added when I am ready to use the card.

I linked my card to The Paper Funday Challenges #27, which is currently underway and ends on Sunday, April 4, 2021.
