The Dueling Darlings' Love Fest!

Hi all!
I've been in such a crafty slump lately. Can't you tell? It's been forever since I posted to my blog.
So sorry.

I also apologize to my Dueling Darling Sisters.....I'm late getting my card posted for our February challenge.
We are honoring our fearless leaders this month. Thank you Kelly and Jeanette for all you do to keep us straight! We love you!

Here it is, Debbie, sent us a lovely kit. She is a great Dazzler hostess! ;)

kit supplies:
Ribbons from Stampin' Up!
Doily - Wilton cake decorating
Flowers - Joann's
Lg white brad/brown brad - Stampin' Up!
Heart brads - ???? My stash
Plaid DP - Hot Off the Press - Christmas Plaid
Heart DP - Hot Off the Press - Lots of Love
"Love" DP - me & My Big Ideas

I made my card 5.5" square.
I colored the leaves on the image with Spectrum markers.
I added a small red flower to the others that Debbie sent and some black card stock behind the image.

I really, really love this kit she sent. Absolutely pun intended! :)

Now, I'm off to see all the yumminess on my DDD sisters' blogs!

Until next time...

I am glad that you found your crafting groove again! I like the die cut you used for the sentiment. The peek-a-boo doily looks great too. Fun!

Oh Melina your card is absolutely yummy! What a darling card design. Live that doily peeking out :). How creative to use black! It really makes your card pop!

Hugs to you and here's to finding your mojo <3

Melina, your card is STUNNING! Lovely use of so many of the elements in Deb's kit - and the black card stock makes it stand out. (You know how I love black CS!)

Thank you for your kind words, too!

I'm so glad we get to duel together each month!

Hi Melina! What a lovely card! Love the papers you choice...such pretty backgrounds for the the focal image and the embellishments!! Love how you tucked the heart shaped doily behind the image panel and how you die cut that wonderful Bible verse image and enhanced it with the pretty flowers! And I'm glad I'm not the only one late in posting for this duel! Thanks!!

Melina, such a pretty layout! Love the soft color touch on the image, and framing it in black really makes it pop! This card certainly doesn't look like you've been in a slump, it's lovely.

So glad that you are a part of the DD's, you are a blessing to us!
