Double Challenge

It's a double challenge over on Dottie's World today where the Sunday challenge is to use a Charmed download and double the challenge with another elsewhere in blogland. I chose to double up with the challenge on Cute Card Thursday where the specs are as follows: "The two of us- we would like you to use two of something on your card, it could be 2 people, 2 animals or 1 of each". On my card I have not only used two of the download characters (Dottie and George), I have used the same image twice - on the front and then again on the inside of the card.
The idea of this card can be summed up by the wording on the card:

"Love Birds" (on the front)

"Separated we are mere shadows of ourselves, together we are complete (inside the card)"

The front depicting the love birds apart is therefore in very plain drab colours, with the inside literally bursting with bright colours when they are joined - depicting the anguish of being parted and the joy of being together.



This was like doing three cards in one go and it did take some time. I am really happy with the result though :o)
