Inspiration Challenge and Double Dog Dare Challenge



Good morning everyone!! Hope you are having a great weekend!! Miss Caitlyn and I are having a lazy Saturday morning....she did sleep long enough this morning so I could make a card for the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast and the Double Dog Dare challenge I do each week with a group of SCS friends. The inspiration challenge was taken from the TV show Mad Men.....the fashion, furniture and advertising design of the series set in a Madison Avenue advertising agency in the 1960’s. These are the dresses I took my inspiration from...I just love the Not Quite Navy and Close to Cocoa colors together. The DDC challenge, hosted by Michelle (sf9erfan), was to case a card from the new SCS catty. I decided to case the card on page 45 with the To You and Your's set. I changed the colors, added some layers, ribbon, and bugged the bottom part of the card. The paper is called Frost by Memory Box and the snowflakes are from Fanciful Flakes by Clear Dollar Stamps.

Now we are off to take a bath...have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting today!!!

Recipe: Stamps: To You and Yours, Clear Dollar Stamps Fanciful Flakes
