Are You Game?


It's the 15th....it's Dueling time!

This month Jeanette and Kelly wanted to see if we, Darlings, were "game"....since it's National Scrabble Week (who knew?!)

Jeanette sent a great kit. I've never seen the image she sent. It's by Art Impressions...

Also, they threw in a little extra challenge. They wanted us to try something new with our kit....something we've never done before. Well, believe it or not, I've never made a card fold like this before....

 
 

I know right, what took me so long?! I love this fold. I made the card 6x6 in size. I LOVE the embossed card stock Jeanette sent! I've gotta get those Tim Holtz folders!!!! :)
There was also a scrabble tile, ribbon, prima flower and brads in the kit (and other lovely Tessa Collins Freestyle Collection papers too) that I just couldn't fit in. Once I started with the star theme...I couldn't stop. :)

Thanks Jeanette for this kit! I loved the extra challenge too. I can't wait to make more of these style cards!
Be sure and check out the other Darlings creations for this Duel. Their blogs are listed in my left sidebar.

Until next time...
Blessings...

Marvelous card, Melina! Your gate-fold card is terrific. Love how you layered the front panels that close the gate fold...very creative. Love the way you incorporated the star theme throughout the card...Beautiful inside and out!!!

STOP with the cuter than cute sentiment! It is perfect.

I really like how you carried the star theme throughout the card exterior and interior.

Very cute!

Oh my gosh! This is adorable...especially if you only knew how much I love bingo! I used to go every week before my son was born. I miss those Friday evenings out by myself.

What a great fold and I love all the stars you added! And you perfectly set off the sentiment using the die cut and both solid and designer paper. Great job.

Yes, our cards do have a similarity to them. ;)
