Double Vision?!

Ever had double vision?! I haven't, but I cannot imagine it would be fun. Unless you're seeing double in this week's Less Is More challenge! And since the challenge was to make a card with two of something, I thought I'd DOUBLE the fun and make DOUBLE the cards!

Here's the first one I came up with~


I had a bunch of punched out butterflies left over from another challenge I had done, so I decided to use two of them to make this card. I added the glitter for a bit extra bling!

Here's a close up~


Now, I do love this card, but I wasn't quite happy with it. Why? It wasn't fall-ish enough! And I NEED it to be fall--I'm sick of the heat! So, I made ANOTHER one!

Here it is~


Don't you love pumpkins?! I do! And these are SO easy to do! Just punch out three ovals, sponge the edges and then put them together! I used ribbon for the stems--a great way to use scraps of left over ribbon!

Close up of the pumpkins~


And the sentiment~


One of the things I love best about the fall is that more people become more thankful. I know I do! I try to live in thanksgiving daily, but I don't do the most bang up job. :)

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you take the time to make some punched out pumpkins! Happy punching!!! :)

Your butterflies look great bunched together like this and I love the added bling. The pumpkins are super, very stylish card. x

Super cards Mynette, but, they cant really be classed as one layer I'm afraid. It is a tricky genre, but, that;s half the fun...hopefully lol

Thank you
Mandi
