Double D, Snuggle Up Buttercup!

Good Morning!

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

Here is you Inspiration Tile for this Challenge:

Snuggle Up Buttercup!

*****  On a personal note I have been having lots of Blogger issues.  My Followers list has disappeared and hardly anyone is receiving any new Blog Post emails.  If you would like to receive them please try following again.  Thank you so much!!! *****

Here is my card: 

I loved that cozy red plaid blanket in the bottom right, but I couldn't find any pretty plaid in my paper stash--how can that be?!?!  So I created my own, quite simple and painless.  I started with a pretty Red card stock and using a White Marker ($1 from Target), a Green Copic and a Sakura Silver Glitter Pen I was able to created this beauty.  The Glitter Pen really adds so much to the 'print', it shimmers and shines beautifully!  

Real Red and Raven Black inks. 
White Enamel Dots.

Stamps by Flourishes; Grab A Cup.  Image colored with Copic Markers.  

Penny Black Border Edges die.
Chunky White Glitter. 

This card will also be entered into the following Challenges; 

Scrapy Land, Anything Goes!
Penny Black, Make Someone Smile.
Crop Stop, Anything Goes (Fall Leaves Optional)

Please come on over to the Double D Blog and join in all of the FUN!
