Today begins another great challenge over on the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long blog:  a pair of threes (use three of everything)  When I made this card, I didn't even think about the theme.  Nope, I was just making to make.  Then I got ready to write this post and realized there was a theme for this challenge.  Oops!!  But, luckily, I added a lot of threes:  three patterned papers, three flowers, three brads and three flourishes (one was cut in half).  The sponsor for this week is Digi Doodle shop and there will be three winners (fitting with the "three" theme).  Each winner will get an image of their choice from Digi Doodle Shop!!  I chose this adorable image called "A box of kittens."  Aren't they so cute?!  I colored them with colored pencils; I have a gray cat and an orange tiger so, of course, I had to put them in the picture.  Go on over and check out the other Design Team cards and then try your hand at the challenge.  We'd love to have you play along
