Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge # 77 - Seeing double

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday.

Welcome to another week of AWESOME creations. I hope you all go a chance to hop with us this week. If not just wait we will be hopping again next week with all new surprises. This weeks challenge is suggested by Carol. She wants us to use the same image on our cards more than once.

On my card I wanted to step it up a bit so I decided to try a Center Step card. This is the first one I have made and you can find the directions at this link http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/centerstepcard. Split Coast stampers have a lot of great ideas for projects. Anyway back to my card. I was pleasantly surprised to see how good this card turned out. I used Mark's Finest Papers October release that we just released this week called Country Thanksgiving. For the base of my card I chose to use Old Olive cardstock. I also used several types of designer paper and hunter green cardstock.  I colored my image with Copic Markers 100, R46, R27, R43, Y19, YR68, B29, E29, E18, E15, E13. Y13, E00, R14, G09, G28, Y15. I stamped my image onto a scalloped die cut and brushed the edges with True Thyme ink. I used white  and several designer papers for layers on my card. I finished the outside of the card with green and gold gems.

On the inside of the card (which I seem to be completing alot lately) wit designer paper, and the same image on the front.

I hope everyone enjoys this weeks challenge! We all look forward to seeing your wonderful creations and commenting on your beautiful cards. You have until 3pm on Friday October 21st to post your card. Remember, if you use any of Mark's Finest Paper stamps your name is entered into the drawing twice!!! Have fun and good luck.

Thanks for stopping and commenting. I would love to see you as followers if not already. Don't forget to come back on Monday for the Friends of SpeedyTV challange and the 12 Days of Christmas blog hop. I hope you enjoyed my card. Have a blessed day.
