Double D Challenge..."Treasured Friend"

Good morning blogger friends!

Ahhh, half way through April and the weather is finally taking an upturn temperature wise and the flowers are blooming.  It's time for our second challenge of the month on the  Double D Challenge Blog and we have a great theme to go along with it..."Friendship".  Team Darlene is hosting along with the help of Team Diane.

This is a perfect challenge for me this week.  I will be attending a weekend crop with friends I haven't seen in a long time.  We are all excited to share stories and time together.   I can hardly wait to see everyone!

As always, we have a fun mood board to inspire you...


And, along with the Top Creative Winner and Top 3, chosen by the Design Team, we are offering the prize below to one lucky winner chosen by random.org.  See the challenge guidelines in the Double D Challenge Blog sidebar.   You have until April 29th to play along. 


Here's my "Friendship" inspiration...

"Treasured Friend"

This A2 size card has many layers with lots of added dimension using dies cuts.  I used distress inks to color the butterflies  and added Wink of Stella to the top lacy wings.  The sentiment is from an older stamp set in my stash. 

From my stash...
Bazzill Cardstock
Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish
Close To My Heart Friendship Bouquet Stamp Set
Creative Expressions Organdy Ribbon
May Arts Twine
Memory Box Elliana Border Frame
Memory Box Stitched Vivienne Butterfly
Memory Box Waltzing Butterflies
Prima Patterned Paper
Spellbinders Banner
Sue Wilson Creative Expressions Catkin Stems
Wink of Stella

So, come join the fun!  Link your "Friendship"  inspired project to our Double D April "Friendship" Challenge post today.  You could be the winner of our awesome prize!

I hope my "Treasured Friend" card has inspired you to play along!
Thanks again for stopping by....come back soon.
