We're Dueling Again!


Well it's that time again!

April O. sent us Dazzlers an ohhhh so cute kit. I love Bella stamps so I was in love with this kit.

The kit included:
 
3 gold brads
Picture clips in white, black and brown
Kaiser paper flowers (used it)
Assorted ribbon (used 1)
Paper:  Heidi Grace Shimmer Foil Clover (used it)
             Karen Foster Shamrocks
             Lucky Limeade
Computer generated Celtic Blessing (used it on the inside)
MFT ala mode 'Wishing You Luck (used the one on cream)


I colored the image with my Spectrum markers. I made the rolled rose and inked it slightly, and I added the old olive piece. The patterned paper, green flower and twine is from April's kit.
I love using papers and card stocks in a "loplolly" way. This way if you're off center or crooked....no one knows! *giggle*

Kadie is the hostess for the Divas team. I can't wait to see what their kit consisted of!
I am one blessed girl to be able to be a part of the Dueling Darlings group on SCS.

Until next time...
Blessings...

Hi Melina! I tried leaving a comment earlier and I guess it didn't go through. Just wanted to say how lovely your card is. Love the way you angled the image and dsp panel and applied the twine on the diagonal...very dynamic. You colored the image so pretty and created a gorgeous rose to add to the daisy flower!! Beautiful card!
Thanks for blessing me with your friendship...You are inspire me all the time!!!

Melina--this sure is pretty. I love the rolled flower inside of the second flower and I also really like how you added the twine.
