Double D, Wishes Are Possible!

Good Morning!

A brand new Challenge is up and running over at the Double D Challenge Blog.

Here is your Inspiration Tile for this Challenge:


Here Is My Card:

Looks like my DT Gal Pal Barbara and I had similar ideas!  ;)

I used the Great Impressions stamp, Queen Ann Lace, which was heat embossed using White embossing powder.  I stamped the image 3 times, moving it in different directions each time, this gives a mystique of movement.  I love the look of White Heat Embossing on Kraft card stock.  I made my frame using Tutti Designs, Cross Stitch Nesting Rectangles.

I also die cut 2 Elizabeth Craft Designs, Dandelion Fluff, which look a lot like the Queen Ann Lace from here.  These were cut from a glittery white card stock.  Beneath my frame I used the MFT, Fanciful Flourish die cuts, cropped.  Sentiment by Gina K Designs, Fairy Tales, White Heat Embossed on to a little Vellum strip.  Natural Twine, Adhesive Rhinestones and itty bitty iridescent star confetti for accents.

May all of your wishes come true!

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!
You'll be glad you did as there is always a pretty prize up for grabs!
