Have a Blast

We're celebrating a magical event at Double Trouble Challenge #79, beginning on Monday, March 15, ending on Sunday evening, March 28, 2021. As usual, there are three "Things" to know about the challenge. Thing 1 (required) is to include something magical in your project. This includes fantasy items such as unicorns, fairies, mermaids, etc. Thing 2 (optional) is to link your project to our partner's challenge at Dies R Us #165, which runs concurrently. Thing 3 (also optional) is our twist. We're asking you to use at least one die. In addition, DTC79 will be selecting a randomly-drawn winner so you could win a prize!

Onto a gray cardstock base, I adhered the constellation map paper. The space dragon, the planet surface, and the tiny Planet Earth with the moon circle were all stamped, colored and fussy cut. The images were adhered to the patterned paper using foam tape. Some small stars were cut with a punch from silver glimmer paper and adhered to the card. The sentiment was stamped and cut with an oval die (that was purchased in the DRU store the last time I played in their challenge). The inside of the card was lined with white cardstock and decorated with a few stamped and colored planets.

We hope you'll join us for this biweekly challenge. Visit the DTC79 Blog and the DRU165 Blog for all the details.
