Well it's that time. Time for another duel...a duel between the Dueling Divas and the Dueling Dazzlers. A group of friends who create cards every month with kits they are sent. It is all just good, clean fun.
This month's theme was Treasured Friend. The Divas were sent a kit from their hostess, Carol and the Dazzlers were sent a kit by ME!! The guidelines of the duel are to create a card with some or all of the kit you receive. The twist on this month's theme was that each participant would add a treasure of their choosing to their card. The catch...it could not be anything bought brand new. It had to be something already at home like a recycled item or something that they had picked up at a second-hand store or garage/yard sale.
There are three pictures of my card. I made a swing-flip card. (Tutorial at stampingschool.com. A fantastic site I might add!!!) First, is the outside of the card, then a picture of how the card opens and lastly the sentiment on the inside. And, the sentiment on the inside is my "treasure." I was looking around for something at home to recycle and couldn't come up with anything. Then yesterday, a friend of mine gave me a gift. It was a necklace and inside the box was this sentiment. How perfect!!!! Girlfriends are definitely treasured gifts. All the Dueling Darlings are a treasure to me, as well as my friend who gave me the necklace.
The image is from SU called, My Matryoshka. The designer paper is from Kaiser Craft. I used my Build-a-Brad set from SU to make the brad in the center of the flower. I cut the sentiment off of the plastic necklace holder and mounted it on cardstock for the inside of the card.
Thanks for looking!!! Have a great weekend!!!
