My friend Taylor is hosting today’s Hope You Can Cling To challenge over at Splitcoaststampers.com, and I was more than happy to help her out when she asked if I would make a sample card for her challenge.  It’s called Two Times the Fun, and the idea is to use two of each item on your card… two different colors, two designer papers, two different ribbons, etc.

After giving this some thought, I decided to create a simple little scene with two colors of designer paper.  I used two different stamps – one for the image, and one for the sentiment.  The sentiment has two words, and the image has two kangaroos.  I snipped the edge of the green paper to make it look more like grass.  I added two pieces of twine, in two different colors, as an embellishment at the top of the card. I think it turned out pretty cute if I say so myself.

I hope you’ll join the Splitcoaststampers community throughout the rest of October as we join together in creating cards for the patients at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas and their families.  You can get all the details about the different challenges and the prizes that will be awarded to challenge participants in November at Splitcoaststampers.com.
