Double D Challenge Black and White

Hello there everyone,

I am playing along for the very first time with the Double D Challenge. I read about it on Leslie Miller's amazing blog and thought I would give it a go. The theme for the challenge is Black and White and here is the mood board that is to serve as inspiration.

I kept my card pretty simple. In stamping at all. Just die cuts. 

Basic white 5 x 7 card layered with a couple pattern papers. Over that I have used the Papertrey Ink Tag Sale 4 die in white tied up with a bit of spotty ribbon. 

I have used the Papertrey Ink Beautiful Butterflies dies in black which I have popped up on pop dots and slightly bent back the wings.

The sentiment die is from Lawn Fawn. Oh boy...the teeny tiny little dot that goes on top of the "i" in birthday is SOOO small! Lastly I added a single black gem in the bottom corner.

I am looking forward to following their blog and participating in future challenges to keep the creative juices flowing.

Thank you for leaving me your comments which mean so very much. Cheers.

  3. Beautiful! I love the mix and matching of your Designer Papers--a favorite technique! Your butterflies are beautiful and that HP die is fantastic! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Double D Challenge Blog, Donna, DT Member.

  4. Melanie, I'm so glad you're playing along with us this time! Honestly, the Double D mood boards really are very inspiring and I love that you have two weeks to get your card in there. You're very creative with the black and white theme. A nice mix of papers and pretty butterflies. I know what you mean about that tiny dot. I always lose them and have to add a rhinestone or Nuvo drop or something. I'll be looking forward to more of your Double D creations. Thanks so much for joining us!

  5. Wowza, loving this card and that die with the writing is awesome. Thank you so much for entering your gorgeous creation in our Black and White challenge...see you next challenge. ♥
