Double Trouble #70 - It's a Humorous Day!

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge #70!

This is a super fun challenge - we are pairing with Atlantic Hearts for two sketches (one each week) and the focus of the projects is to add some form of stitching and if desired, humour. Who doesn't love a humorous card? The graphic is below and more information can be found on the Double Trouble challenge blog

I used stitched dies for the stitching element on both of my cards. The first card for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #393 (runs from November 2-8) is a very sarcastic birthday card. The design is simple and understated, leaving the focus on the goat and the sentiment. I added some white acrylic hearts and silver embellishing thread to finish off the card. 

The second card for week 2 and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #394 (runs from November 9-16) has a completely different approach - bold and bright and I rotated the sketch 90 degrees. I did that to fit the sentiment I wanted to use. The outer frame and the sentiment with the mat were all cut using stitched dies. The sentiment was stamped using the rock 'n roll technique to get a darker edge (using Lagoon and Sapphire inks). What adult doesn't want to nap during the day AND be told how great an achievement that is for us???

Come and join us at Double Trouble and Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the information for these challenges.
