There is a new challenge starting at Love to Scrap Challenge Blog today.  Our challenge is "Two of a Kind".  Our fabulous sponsors are

Prize: $10 gift certificate

Prize: 3 images to winner

Prize: 3 single digital images

My image comes from SLS Lines.  It's called "Flowers Hibiscus".   Originally I had decided to use two flowers on one card.  Apparently I made them a bit too big to get onto one card.  So in keeping with the two of a kind theme, I made two cards.  They are not identical but so similar I think it works.  

I colored the image four times.  Two were used as a base and two to pop up the flowers to give them more depth.  I also painted them with Glossy Accents to make them stronger.  They would not be complete without some glitter.  I used my Stickles for that.

I hope you can join us in the challenge and don't forget to pop over to the LTSCB and check out all the other marvelous creations made to inspire you.

Thanks for your visit and have a blessed day!
