Double Trouble with the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge Design Team

Morning all,  my doesn't the time fly, hope you all had a wonderful weekend :)

Today sees the next awesome challenge at the 

where the theme has been chose by our very talented Lori, and she chose

Double Trouble
This can be an image with two HM images or you could create a scene yourselves using two separate images, so much scope for you to play with.

We had two fabulous sponsors this challenge the first is 

 the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store ...

and also the amazing
The Lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to Di's Digi Downloads Shop

I could not resist playing with another new stamp purchased at the Doncaster Racecourse Craft show, this is one that I have had my eye on for ages and just had to add to my collection. (Now I apologise for the darker photography but due to the angle of the card the glare did not allow you to see the creation at it's best)

I made a wedding card, this is a large Go Kreate heart shaped easel.

There are layers of the three hears, using black as the base layer and contrast, followed by some Papermania papers.  Sentiment is by Wild Rose Studio on the front and inner return.  The front sentiment is sat on a nestie label and the return sentiment is sat on a nestie circle and Nellie Snellen heart die cut.  I have added cheesecloth, flowers and some die cut Marianne die cut hearts.  Liquid pearls surround the Nellie Snellen return sentiment heart and two little gold bead hearts support the whole feel of the card. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and have been air brushed.

Here is the close up of the image called "Playing Dress Up Wedding" available from 

I have coloured in various greys with just the red, purple and green as additional, which have also been enhanced by the Atyou Glitter pens.

Anyway that is my creation but do hop over to the main site for all the other gorgeous eye candy from the wonderful HM team.
