"Baby It's Cold Outside" with Double D!

Hi everyone and welcome to another
Double D Challenge !

Tomorrow is officially the first day of winter and team Darlene is up with the second mood board challenge for December on the Double D Challenge Blog.  We're a group of ladies having fun challenging your mojo twice a month.  Today's challenge is, "Baby, It's Cold Outside!"  A perfect theme for the winter season.   Show us your project using the inspiration mood board posted below.  There are four different photos to inspire you.  Link it up at the bottom of  the "Baby, It's Cold Outside"  post in the Double D Challenge Blog by midnight, December 31st, for the chance to be a winner!

We'll be choosing a Creative Winner along with 3 others selected by our Design Team to receive a Double D Badge to share on their blogs.  There will also be a prize winner chosen by random draw for the prize shown below.  EVERYONE with an entry has a chance to win.  International entries are welcome too!

You could win this Impression Obsession Skate Die!

And, here's my "Baby, It's Cold Outside!" inspiration...


I found lots of inspiration on this mood board...the blue tones, the pop of pink, the straight lines of the fence and sled, and of course, the white snow.  And, if you look closely, you will see the deer on the coffee mug!  The gems change colors, sometimes being very blue and then changing to a pink cast like an opal would when the angle of light changes.  I love their sparkle effect!

I created lots of dimension using layers and foam tape.  The stag is cut from glitter cardstock x 2  and layered.  The sentiment is stamped and embossed with Marcasite embossing powder.

I hope I've inspired you to play along with our Double D, "Baby, It's Cold Outside" Challenge! Check out the Double D Blog for challenge details and to see more inspiration from my fellow teamies.
