First Wednesday of the month means first
Double D Challenge of the month of February!!

We have an easy and fun theme once again to work with
and it is

Look at the fun inspiration board below just to get you inspired!

My first thought was to do a flamingo card,
then I just couldn't resist that adorable mitten
and since we are smack IN winter, I decided it would be perfect!

What's even more perfect is I used a cut file from The Cutting Cafe called
Mitten Shaped Card.
I cut it on my Cricut making it so simple.
Once cut, I stitched around the mitten part
then added Sparkle N Sprinkle Brushable Glue to the cuff
and sprinkled with Sparkle N Soft Twinkling Clouds flocking.
I added a shiny silver ribbon/bow to that.

In my ever growing stash I found a little canvas heart on a tiny clothespin,
covered the heart with Nuvo Glue Pen Large,
then Sparkle N Sprinkle Reflection glitter.
This is probably my most favorite silver glitter of all...
it is so fine!! 

And of course the 'finale' are the SEQUINS...many silver ones!

Now you HAVE to pop on over to the
Double D challenge blog and see all the gorgeous creations the
Design Teams will be as usual WOWED!!!!

Entering the following challenges:
