Double Trouble Challenge # 86 - Guest Designer

For the month of June, I was invited to guest design for the 

The theme for Challenge #86 is "Let's Celebrate".
This Challenge runs from 
Monday,  June 7th thru Sunday, June 20th

Here are the details:

Thing 1:  Trouble Maker 
says, "Mr. Trouble Maker and I are celebrating our 52nd Anniversary today and June is the month of weddings... so let's create a project for a wedding, anniversary, engagement, or any special celebration."  

You can stop here... 
play along with Twisted Sister's optional twist below to earn another chance at our random draw.  

Thing 3:  Twisted Sister 
says, "Mr. Twisted and I are surprising Mr. and Mrs. Trouble Maker with an Anniversary Garden Party and we'll be serving tea and cookies.  

"Our partner, If You Give a Crafter a Cookie, is providing a photo of the cookies we will be serving. You're invited to be our guest. To celebrate let's use their inspirational photo to include any combination of flowers, butterflies, and/or colors in your project above."  

If you use this inspiration photo in creating your project you will earn another chance in our Random Draw and can share it with Double Dare's Dare.   

Thing 2:  Double Dare 
says, "Mr. Dare and I have been invited to Mr. and Mrs. Twisted's Garden Party for cookies and tea to celebrate Mr. and Mrs. Trouble Maker's Anniversary."  

If you have met Mr. and Mrs. Trouble Maker's requirements and have used the inspiration photo please join us and enter here at "If You Give a Crafter a Cookie".  

You are cordially invited to a very special garden wedding and reception.

Well, not a real garden wedding and reception,

just the one I depicted on this side step card.


The main image is an old wood rubber stamp from Oak Pond.  I used Dazzle stickers for the trellis and SU stamps and dies for the flowers .

The table and refreshments are MFT stamps, all fussy cut.  The fence was in my stash, origin unknown.  Tree die is from MFT.  Celebrate die is from Momenta.  Butterflies were punched.  Heart border is a Pink and Main die.  I did the coloring with pencils and used clear Wink of Stella to blend them. 

Make sure you visit the Double Trouble Challenge blog to see what trouble their fabulous Design Team got into this week.
I hope you'll be able to join the fun this week.
