Double Trouble Challenge #29 - National Brown Bag-It Day "You're Sweet"

This is my Design Team card for Double Trouble Challenge #29 National Brown Bag-It Day (using kraft paper) and partnering with Try Stampin' on Tuesday using their Sketch Challenge #409 and using Twisted Sister's optional twist for National Pick Strawberry Day "include a strawberry".  Cut strips for the borders and used stitched border designs in each strip.  The image was colored with a variety of Copic Sketch alcohol-based bush pens, fussy-cut partially outside of the circle and adhered with foam tape.  The sentiment and embellishments were die-cut, layered and adhered with foam tape for dimension.  

Looking for fun challenges?  Join us at Double Trouble HERE and see our DT inspirations along with other entrants for this current challenge.  This challenge is open until Sunday, June 2nd, 11pm MTN...we would love to see what inspired you. 

"Brown Bag-It Day" 

THING 1: Trouble Maker
says, "In celebration of National Brown Bag-It Day, I've asked the Unknown Comic from the late Gong Show to inspire our challenge. Use Kraft paper, even a paper bag for your project."

Don't get the Gong, come play aLong!

Don't stop here...for more fun check out the optional Sketch challenge below.

THING 2: Double Dare
says, "What a great sketch to use for Kraft as an accent in your design, so many choices of what panel(s) to use." 

It's Optional...if you use this sketch you can also submit to Try Stamping on Tuesday Challenge #409 between the dates of May 20th - June 2nd. Link your project HERE and you will receive an additional chance at the Double Trouble Random Draw. 

Use the DT cards below for ideas or use your own interpretation of the sketch. Feel free to change the orientation... rotate the sketch or use its mirror image. You may also modify shapes as long as we can see the basic sketch in your project. 

THING 3: Twisted Sister
says, "In my opinion I've been berry, berry good. Celebrate National Pick Strawberry Day with me and include strawberry(s) in your project and you can earn an additional chance at our random draw".  

This is an optional twist; however, this sketch offers a perfect opportunity to use strawberry(s) as an embellishment or focal point.
