All Geared Up for Festive Friday FF#0135 and Double Trouble Challenge #139

Happy Friday.

It's a double opportunity challenge this week across at Festive Friday.  We are joining with our crafty friends across at the Double Trouble challenge.  That means you can create a single card and enter it into two difference challenge sites!  I love it when that happens.  The two challenges work really well.  Our INSPO list has elements that perfectly tie into the Double Trouble challenges as we are celebrating FATHER'S DAY and Double Trouble is celebrating masculine!

For my card I pulled out an oldie but goodie from SU called Geared up Garage.   I added some plaid, metal plate texture and bright colors - here's a sneak peek:

Now, on to the challenges.    For the Festive Friday INSPO list all you need to do is use three elements from the list on your card.  Here are the badges for you;

For my card I used my Plaid Maker Stencils from The Greetery  to create a plaid background.   I incorporated the colors that I was using in the rest of the card into the plaid.  The metal grid base is a piece I die cut about two years ago and never used - it was perfect for this card!  I stamped, colored and die-cut the car and assembled everything together.

Here's my card:



Elements/inspo list items used:   plaid, blue, die-cuts, vehicle

I hope you will join us and play along with our combined challenge at Festive Friday and Double Trouble this week.  The teams would love to see what you create!

Our Festive Friday design team has some fabulous inspiration for you:

This is fab Jaydee - I love the bright colours, plaid stencilling and embossed frame. Classically retro!

Suzanne Reynolds

I love those two colors together, the bright bold green background and your blue/greens in the vehicle... striking. Love the way you stenciled your plaid background also. Thanks for sharing your DT card with us at Double Trouble and hope you come back for future fun challenges.
