CD 409 and DT 65 - Something, Anything and Everything

 Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 65 and Colour Dare Challenge # 409!

Today is the normal posting day for Colour Dare but Double Trouble is posting a few days earlier than usual because our last partner challenge ended last night (Thursday). 

This week is the final week in August so it's the Something, Anything, Everything challenge for Double Trouble - check the images for further info or visit the Double Trouble blog

The palette for Colour Dare is shown below. 

I looked several places for a telephone that wasn't a cell phone (Thing 3 for Double Trouble) - and after a while with searches coming up empty, I decided to use a cell phone image on my card. I used a double layered background of Black and Peacock cardstock before adding 3 strips of paper on top. The cellphone image was cut from the Artistry Cricut Collection. I tried to cut speech bubbles but I wasn't able to get them to fit properly so I ended up cutting my own instead. The hearts are all brushed with the Raspberry Shimmer Brush. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and Colour Dare and show us how you interpret the information above.

  1. How fun! I love the speech bubbles with the phone!! Too Cute.

  2. Such a fun card, Alyson! Love the brightness with the black. Fun use of our colors.

  3. What a cute card! I would have never guessed that the word bubbles were hand cut.

  4. Great card, Alyson! I always enjoy seeing your art. (I am sure Emma Nutt would like this, too.)

  5. Love the speech bubbles you used on your cell, great job. Fun Card.

  6. That's a really cute card! I have an original Cricut from like 2007 or 2011 and cartridges and I've never used it! My bad! Right? lol Your speech bubbles look just fine. I've got several stamps and never use those either. I've tried but none fit my phrase. Probably smarter to make your own! I'm still relaxing by trying to catch up on my blog visiting. My kneecap has begun hurting now whenever I step just so. Honey says it's the stress leaving the body. I think I'm falling apart~! hahaha XXO

  7. I love your card, its so cute that it has a whole conversation in speech bubbles. Great colours and love the added shimmer.

  8. I love the speech bubbles on your phone! This is so cute and you did great using those colors too :)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment - it truly makes me smile :)
