Double D Celebrations

Hello there!

Today team Diane are kicking off the first challenge of 2017 over at 


It's a very special challenge ... We are celebrating our 1st birthday!
The theme is "Anniversary" and here's the lovely tile board to inspire you 


Now before I go on to share my card ... A note about our celebrations

This challenge will run as usual for a fortnight and as well as the prizes given to our winners by the lovely Dar and Diane, there will be extra prizes up for grabs! But the celebrations don't end there... The following fortnight's challenge will also have extra prizes! AND many of the team members (both teams) are also offering a prize on their blogs. It's one heck of a celebration so hop on over to the Double D Blog for full details

Now on to my card... 


It's actually my wedding anniversary today, honestly, so I had to make something that wasn't too girly that I could give to my husband, though seeing that lovely tile board I did wonder what I could come up with... But the greens, the silver and that wood framed chalkboard caught my eye and that's what led me to this card


As always our teams have created some wonderful projects to inspire you... You can go frilly and fancy or simple... It's up to you
And before I forget, Here's the gift I will be offering 


All you have to do is to leave me a comment and I'll draw a name at the end of the challenge to see who wins... There's no blog hop and the same will apply to all the team member blogs ... If you'd like a chance of winning their gift just leave them a comment and for a chance to win the prizes offered by Double D, just link up your creation... Simple!


Before I go I'd like to wish my friend and fellow blogger the very talented Keren Baker
Happy Birthday!

Wishing you a wonderful day

~ Ros ~

Edit ... I have been asked if you can enter if you live in the UK ... Well I'm based in the UK and Yes, you can enter from anywhere in the world ... Double D do not have any restrictions which makes it such a great challenge blog.

This is just gorgeous, and perfect for either male or female anniversary card. The die cut branches against the subtle background, and then that hanging star is just exquisite. I always love seeing your projects. Thank you for the chance to win and for sharing this beauty with us!!

Congrats on your wedding anniversary! I hope the groom takes you out for dinner....
Love your take on that board; not too feminine. As always your background is perfect and I love the branches. Love your new blog header too; I honestly don't know if I already mentioned that.
Have a lovely day...

Happy Anniversary to you and your hubbie! And Happy Blog Birthday, too! Wow, it's a month of celebration for you! And what a gorgeous card with a masculine touch, perfect for your husband! At first I didn't see the connection to the mood board, but seeing the gorgeous details here make it clear. I love that background, the die cut branches and the simple embellishment. I am trying to do some CAS cards now, so I have quite an appreciation for this! Love it, as I'm sure your husband will, too! Thank you for offering your super generous prize! I've got my fingers, legs and eyes crossed to be a lucky winner...I can see so many crafty possibilities with this die set!

Happy Anniversary to you and your husband!! Your card is just lovely with the soft background and pretty star hanging from the limb! Your husband will love it I'm sure! Happy 1st Anniversary to DD! And, thank you for the chance to win a lovely prize!

Kathy Krug said...

Wonderful background for the branch and shiny stars. so clever to tie one star to the branch. I love the beauty and simplicity.

Vicki robertson said...

Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby, Ros! Simply love your elegant card. The wood grain background paper and limbs look great against the background. Love the hanging star! That MB Twiggy Branch is a favorite of mine.

Leslie Miller said...

Well, happy anniversary, Ros! I think this card is perfect for the occasion. LOVE your stamped trees with the sponging and then the die cut branches coming in from the side. The wood grain paper is a great idea for the branches and the narrow peeking border. So cute with the stars, and I especially love the star dangling as though it got hung up there as it was falling from the sky. I'm so glad we're teammates!

Claudia V said...

Love, Love this card! Simple yet beautiful! I love the way you made the branches look fuller by turning the diecut in opposite directions. Love the star and the muted background and the smaller stars just tie it all together.
