It's a Darling Duel!!!



Good morning!

And welcome to the Duel. It's the Dueling Divas v. the Dueling Dazzlers. Actually we are just a group of crafting friends having some fun. Each Dazzler and each Diva received a card kit with the same theme. Each of us made a card using some or all of the kit we received. The theme for this month's Duel was...I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream.

Above is the card I made for this Duel using the Darling image I received along with some really great dp and blue velllum paper. I watercolored my image and used my Swiss Dots CB embossing folder to add some texture to the vellum paper. I had recently bought the MS Ice Cream Punch and just had to use it on this card once I knew the theme.

Thanks for looking.

Oh my goodness... now if this isn't the most precious card, I'm not sure what is. Too cute, Debbie! I love how you used polka dots to the vellum and added that marvelous ice cream cone. Yummy! Your watercoloring is gorgeous! Love the white spots/dots you added to Ki Ki's hair, too. And the layout is superb! Fun!!!
