DT 105 - All Smiles

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 105!

St. Patrick's Day is around the corner and it's all about green and plaid this week. The small graphic is below - please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for detailed information. 

I used a pair of stencils to create the background for my card. I used the same ink for both parts but a slightly darker hand for the second layer. The leaves were stamped, coloured and die cut and I added a layer of vellum slightly offset behind each. The gold leaves were die cut from gold foil and all the leaves were arranged facing down on the card. The sentiment was die cut from gold foil and adhered to a vellum background. I added a pair of white ribbons and some white enamel gems to finish off the card.

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us how you interpret this challenge. 

I am also linking up my card with Heart 2 Heart for their challenge.
