We're Dueling Again!

That's right! The Dueling Darlings are at it again! We're going another round :)
April C. sent out this month's kit and wow, what a cute one it was. There were all kinds of Valentine"y" papers, black glittery c/s, mirror c/s, all kinds of ribbons and pearls and images and sentiments and, and, and......... You should have seen it all! I have plenty of leftovers to do 1 or 2 more cards! Thanks April :)
I went a little punchy crazy with this card...
After I used the mirror c/s as my base....I realized how hard it was going to be to photograph it. Oh well, I tried to stand off to the side, but you still can see my lime green shirt I had on while getting the pic! LOL! I loved the little pom-poms April sent. They were strung on wire so you could turn and line it any way you wanted. With the black glittery paper I used my 3 heart punch. With a couple of the Valentine papers I used my scalloped circle punch. I used the inkpad watercolor technique to color my cherub, ain't he cute?
I hope you get a chance to look at all the other Darlings blogs. They are listed in my left sidebar.
Thanks for visiting today.
Until next time...
Blessings...

Your card turned out great! I really like the paper you chose to use - even if it was hard to photograph! I have had that happen with shiny paper too! Great layout. I especially like how you used the pom pom ribbon.

Melina, what a stunning idea to use mirror card stock as the base! Very classy and makes the eye focus on the soft coloring of your cupid and the hearts. Really like this one!
