"Let's Get Krafty" Earth Day card as Double Trouble Guest Designer

Hello and happy April! I have been invited to be the guest designer this month at Double Trouble Challenge.  April's first challenge is "Let's Get Krafty" and runs through April 14.  I  used kraft card stock as my card base.  I used a variety of techniques to incorporate shades of blue as per the Twisted Sister element.

Here's the prompt for Double Trouble challenge #163.

Here is a close up of my die cut and background.  I inked the edges and shaded with chalking ink.  I sprayed the kraft card stock with shimmer spray to lend a touch of sparkle. The sparkle background segues into iridescent paper I used for the globe stand.  I cut both parts of the globe from shades of blue in keeping with the Twisted Sister prompt.

Spellbinders August 2020 Around the World dies
Kindred Stamps Earth Day stamps
Stampin Up Blueberry Bushel ink
Lindy's Gang Starburst Sprays Bachelor Button Blue
Quick Quotes Powderpuff chalking ink Blue Moon

The final piece of this challenge is to join in the challenge over at Inspiration Station.  HERE is there prompt and more details.

This will qualify you for an additional chance in our random drawing. "Try to leave the Earth a better place than it was when you arrived.” -- Sidney Sheldon
