Congrats! - You're Toadally Awesome

Welcome! The Design Team at Double Trouble is hoping you'll play along with Biweekly Challenge #83. The challenge begins on Monday, May 3, and ends on Sunday evening, May 16, 2021. As usual, there are three elements to the challenge, and your chances to win the random draw prize are increased as you add each element to your project. 

Thing 1, which is required, is to use a fun fold for your project. (I chose to make a Peekaboo Slider card.)

Thing 2, which is optional, is to link your project with our partner's Challenge #95 at Crafting Happiness. Check out their guidelines so your creation will fit their challenge, too.

Thing 3, also optional, is challenging you to "Jump for Joy" by adding at least one toad or frog to your project.  

To create my Peekaboo Slider card, I used a YouTube tutorial by Dawn at Dawn's Stamping Thoughts. I made the window oval rather than round so my stamped images would fit. I also kept the card front clean of embellishments because the patterned paper is busy and I wanted to keep the focus on the window. Some of my items are stamped, colored, and fussy cut while others are stamped directly to paper. The image with three frogs (inside of card) was found on the Internet and is from an illustration by artist, Jennifer Nilsson.

I hope you'll give our challenges a try by visiting the challenge blogs for DTC83 and CH95.

I recently learned about a somewhat new challenge whose focus is on Fun Fold cards so I have added my creation to Creative Creases Challenge #6. This challenge began on Monday, May 3, and will end at noon (EDT) on Thursday, May 13, 2021. Let's support this new card challenge!

  7. Holy cow, I was just putting your card in DT Calls and Crafting and saw that I hadn't commented on your adorable card. Love that background paper and the window with the peek-a-boo frog and inside all his friends... love it all.
