Today is Tuesday so you know...that means it's time to get twisted at www.twistedtuesdaychallenges.blogspot.com
This week's challenge is to make a creation with a "chain" of some sort on it. Whether it be a literal metal chain or a row of bling, beads, punches as long as it resembles a chain. (go back to the kid in you when you made paper chains for the Christmas tree!)
The Twist is that your card needs to be tall or long.
Today is also the 15th so if you follow my blog you know that today is when the Dueling Darlings come out of our Crafty Closets and post some yummy goodness for you all to see!
This month for the Dazzlers team, Sweet P (Paola) sent us the most beautiful kit ever!
Here’s what was included in each of the Dazzlers’ kits :
Ink : Memento Black & Archival Versafine Antique Sepia
Card Stock : Very Vanilla (SU) & White c/s from Wausau Paper Co.
Designer Papers : from Costco
Accessories : cut out butterflies from Sizzix BigZ Beautiful Butterflies ; pink daisy flower w/ pearl (from Jolee’sBoutique) ;
5 petal silk flower from Michaels ; styled vanilla hardware from (SU Hodgepodge) ; buttons and beads from my stash ;
pink/vanilla gingham ribbon & polka dotted ribbon from local craft store.
Here's what I made....
Now, to go along with the Twisted Tuesday challenge...my card has a "chain" of beads on the butterfly and a "chain" of blue paper beads across it. For the twist...my card is 3.5"x6.25".
I absolutely love this image! Great choice Sweet P ;) I so love how everything coordinates in her kit. I added the other die cut butterfly to the envelope.
Here's what our lovely hostesses asked us to do along with our cards......
When you upload and post your May Dueling Darling creation on May 15th , we would also like you to tell us what you love about May.
It could be your favorite activity, a special event or a favorite flower that you associate with. We look forward to seeing your offerings!
Well, I love quite a few things about May.
1. My birthday :)
2. Mother's Day (and I don't except combined birthday and Mother's Day gifts...they must be 2 separate gifts! LOL)
3. The pollen is finally starting to dissipate and I can enjoy my flower gardens more!
4. School is ending. I love my kids being home and being able to be kids!
5. Our first of a few Vacations is coming up! Woooo! Whoooo!
Well, that's it! I hope you enjoyed my combined challenges today.
I hope you get a chance to visit the other Dueling Darlings blogs. They are listed in my left sidebar.
Until next time...
