Double Trouble 80 - Something, Anything, Everything - plus Atlantic Hearts 414

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 80 and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 414! 

It’s the 5th Monday in the month so it’s is a one week challenge at Double Trouble. Thing 1 is anything goes but if you want to play along with Things 2 and 3, the details are below. A full description of the expectations can be found on the Double Trouble Challenge Blog

The sketch for Atlantic Hearts is shown below. 

I stayed true to the sketch as I loved the idea of a window. Thing 3 at Double Trouble is to add a stamped or die cut coloured image and those would be the flowers. I stamped, coloured and fussy cut several of the cherry blossoms to use in the planter. 

When I created this, my computer was in for service and I could not get my Cricut to work with my other devices. Consequently, I drew and hand cut the window box. The sentiment was stamped in 1st and 2nd generation with Peacock ink. I inked the edges of the wood grain paper, brushed the flowers with the Clear Shimmer Brush and added a few sparkles around the card. 

Come and join us at both Double Trouble and Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the expectations for each challenge. 

You have until Sunday evening to link up your projects.

We can’t wait to see what you create!
