Windy Days of March

Welcome to my blog! Today I am featuring a card for Double Trouble Challenge #105, a biweekly challenge that runs through Sunday evening, March 20, 2022. Our challenge usually has three elements:

Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker has decided we need to focus on the color green. This month we have St. Patrick's Day and the first day of spring so using the color green seems like a good idea. If you join our challenge you are eligible for our random draw.

Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare is hoping you'll also link your project to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge. Be sure to visit their blog to see their guidelines. You will be awarded another chance in our random draw if you play along at H2H.

Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister has added a twist to this challenge by asking you to use plaid on your project. Details are available at the DTC105 Blog. Using plaid means you will qualify for another chance in the random draw.

My card is a depiction of a windy day since March is known for being blustery. The card panel was die-cut in a Slimline size from white cardstock. I daubed three shades of green dye ink using a stencil. A Copic marker was used for the brown tree branches. The sentiment was die-cut from gold foiled cardstock and adhered, followed by the gems. I added two tiny hand-cut shapes that resemble birds, topping them off with Wink of Stella. The main panel was added to plaid paper followed by a white card base. The inside was decorated with coordinating paper and a stenciled leafy branch.

We hope you'll visit our DTC105 Blog and that of our partner, H2H, and play in our challenges.
