Dueling Darlings Challenge #1

Hello!
Is it Monday already?!

I'm a part of a group of ladies that thought it would be neat to send out some images, paper and embellishments (1 hostess per month sending these kits to ladies on their team) and put 'em all together on a card. This may sound a little confusing. The idea behind it was for each lady to have the same kit, use her own card base, and then see how differently the same kit can look.

There are 2 teams. Each team has a kit sent by their August hostess. Our August theme was Ice Cream! Yummmm...



Look at the cute things the Dueling Darling Dazzlers August hostess sent!
The image is called Sweet Ki Ki La Rue from CC Designs.

Here are my teammates...

Now, the other Dueling Darlings team....the Divas, had their own August hostess that sent out kits using the same "Ice Cream" theme.

Thanks so much for visiting me today.

Until next time...

Melina, your card is perfect!!! I love it!!!!!!!!! Your creativity and oh-so-many details is fantastic! Great use of the circle to draw attention to the image and the placement of the buttons is awesome. Your coloring is beautiful! Looks like you did some distressing to the edge of the image, too... nice touch! I'm dazzled by your awesome creation!
