Book Blitz with the Dueling Darlings


Hi Y'all! :)

I'm a little late in the day posting my Dueling Darlings creation. Terry is the Dazzler's hostess this month. She sent a great kit. I love the theme they came up with. Nicholas Sparks is my favorite author. I've read all his books and wait patiently during the fall of the year for his next one to be released. :) I'm hooked!!!

Here's what I made with Terry's kit:

(sorry for the slightly blurry picture....it is very rainy and gloomy here...camera wasn't cooperating)

I added the blue card stock and bird button. The rest came from the kit! I love earth tones and the script patterned paper is wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by!
Please check out what the other Darlings made. Their blogs are listed in my left sidebar.

Until next time...
Blessings...

Oh, I really like how you cut the image and layered on circle die cuts. Of course the bird button caught my eye - looks great!

Hope your week is going better!

Beautiful card, Melina...So worth the wait! Great design and terrific rich colors!! Love the buttons and how you placed them on the rim of the focal die cut! Thanks for sharing your fav read. So many of the DDs have mentioned Nicholas Sparks as fav author.

Melina, I just love the blues and browns together, and the circle is such a nice touch! Birdie button, huh? You know I'm all over that!! LOL
Hoping that today was better, altthough I hear your weather is still awful. Hugs and wishing you some creative time soon!

Great color combo and layout. I especially like the circles behind the image, the bright blue just pops. Pretty card.
