It's All About Love!

The Darlings are Dueling again! Yep! It's time to see us duel!

Sweet P is the Dazzlers hostess this round.
She and Judy (Divas hostess) came up with:
It's All About Love
for our theme. :)

Sweet P outdid herself with this cute kit.
Here's what I made:

I LOVE the papers Sweet P sent! Gorgeous colors!
They went perfect with my very vanilla card base and cherry cobbler card stock piece!
Here's the inside.

I made this card for the challenge of course, but I also made it for my hubby.
This is his Valentine's card. :)
He is a huge Crimson Tide (Alabama College football) fan so the color in this card, in the kit, fit him to a tee! Thanks Sweet P!

Be sure and check out the other Darlings creations. Their blog links are located in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time...
