Double D "Black and White" Challenge!

Welcome to Part II of the Double D Challenge Blog's one year anniversary celebration.

We continue this celebration with our second monthly challenge.   We'll also be adding two additional winners who will win prizes, besides choosing our Top 3, Overall Winner and the Winner just as we did for the first challenge! You can find guidelines,  prize information and photos in the Double D Blog.

  Our theme for this challenge is "Black and White"!
You'll find lots of inspiration with our current mood board.   Choice is good and we leave lots of room for you to choose from the photos below.  As always, you can pick one of the four, or use them all to inspire your project.  Link it up to the Double D Blog's "Black and White" Challenge post and you could be a winner! 

My inspiration... 


My inspiration came from the arched windows and butterflies.  I had this gazebo die cut in my stash that had been waiting to be used and the arched design was just what I wanted for my card.  There are many gentle curves and swirls on the gazebo, corner die cuts and ribbon that make the design flow together.  The "Celebrate" sentiment is one of my newest dies and I really love how the script went with the rest of the card theme.  I added some fluttering butterflies for a touch of romance.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I hope my card has inspired you to play along with our "Black & White" Challenge.  You could be the winner of one of our "Anniversary Celebration" prizes available on the Double D Challenge Blog! Visit the Double D Blog and link your creation at the bottom of the "Black & White" Challenge Blog post.
