Well it's time for another duel. That's right...the Dueling Darlings have dueled it out again this month. The Dazzlers received an awesome kit from Paola.
The theme for this month's duel was "Fun and Laughter Forever After." The image is Best of Luck from Penny Black. The birthday sentiment is from the Perfect Punches set from Stampin' Up! Then our kits included so much embellishment goodness it was incredible. There was designer paper from Daisy D called "Paisley Bloom" and doublesided designer paper from K & Company called, "Lovely." Our kit also included a paper doiley, three different strips of ribbon, candy dots, a button, rosettes, and several other flowers and gems. Like I said, so much embellishment goodness!!!
For my card I used SU Whisper White, Crumb Cake and Riding Hood Red cardstock. I loved the Paisley Bloom designer paper and had to use that. I colored the image with my Copic markers and my Riding Hood Red SU marker. To embellish my card I used the Riding Hood Red stripped grossgrain ribbon from SU, one of the rosette flowers (from Michael's), the self-adhesive candy dots by Pebbles, Inc. and then the paper doiley. I sponged around my image and on my doily with Crumb Cake ink to give it a little of a distressed looked. I used my large oval punch from SU for my sentiment.
Along with this awesome kit we received instructions that when posting our card we were to share a New Year's Resolution that we have NEVER kept so far but really want to. Mine is easy...learning not to worry about the things I don't have control over. Every year I want to learn how not to worry about those things I cannot control and yet, every year....I still worry. Will I ever learn?
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
