The Old One Two Punch! Come Join the Fun!

The weekly Double Dare Challenge I do with a few SCS friends was hosted by Charlene this week (LilLuvsStampin) and the instructions were:

1. Use one or more punches
2. Use a background stamp
3. No designer paper allowed
For my project - I made a magnetic bookmark using the colors for the color challenge on Split Coast and following the Double Dare Challenge instrucions.

I used a Martha Stewart punch, a bird shapeabilitie and 2 flower shapeabilities. (hope those count as punches!) I used the Cornish Heritage Farms Pretty Pattern background stamp on the bigger flower and bird and Polka dots background stamp from Papertrey Ink on the smaller flower (that doesn't show up in the photo - sorry!)

I attached two pieces of magnet strip inside so you can close this on the page of a book to mark where you stopped reading. The bookmark has a 5 1/4 x 2 5/8 piece of card stock as it's base - folded in half.The Double Dare girls would like to invite you to join along in our weekly challenges!

Just create a card or project using the Double Dare challenge instructions listed above (not the colors part) and post it in your Split Coast gallery. Please be sure to use the keyword DDC when you post so we can all find your card. There is no time limit to posting.

A new challenge is issued each Tuesday. The 9 Double Dare Challenge Friends on SCS are: Itsapassion (Anne), beestamper (Bev), jdmommy (Anne), artystamper (me - Julia), joan ervin (Joan), sleepyinseattle (Joanne), Francie G. (Fran) LilLuvsStampin (Charlene) and sf9erfa (Michelle).
