The Darlings are Birds of a Feather...............

...........we flock together!!!

The Dueling Darlings group (crafting sistahs over on Split coast Stampers) have been dueling for 4 years now! I can't believe it has been that long. It seems like yesterday I joined this fun-loving, sometimes nutty group of women. I love this group!

This round our fearless leaders were our hostesses. Jeanette for the Dazzlers and Kelly for the Divas.
The kit that Jeanette sent is soooooooooooooooo cute!
She and Kelly wanted us to use 4 of something on our card. So, 4 flowers, 4 gems, 4 brads, etc.

Here's what I did:

Is that Penny Black image (called Chicky Work Out) not the cutest thing?!!
I love it!
I colored my image with Spectrum/Noir markers.
I used the 4 yellow gems Jeanette sent in the kit as my 4 items. I love the sentiment she sent also (from Great Impressions). It reminds me of the show "The Wonder Years". Even though I wasn't allowed to watch the show (ha ha), I do remember listening to the theme song any chance I got.

I can't wait to see what all the other Darlings did with their kits and what the Divas' kits included.

You can find their blogs listed in my left sidebar.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Until next time...
Blessings...

I agree, that is the cutest image! I like how you created with it and the ribbon you added just tops the card off!

Hi Melina! Fun and fantastic... that's what your card is! Love that darling image and how beautifully colored it is bringing various tones from the pretty striped background paper. The ruffled ribbon the angled sentiment panel and the "4 of one kind" bling panel are the perfect additions!!!

You are a blessing to me both as a fellow papercrafter and also as a Christian friend. I'm so grateful to be part of the Dueling Darlings with you!
