Dueling It Out at the Movies!!!!


It's April 15th...and it's not all about taxes!!!!

But it is about the Dueling Darlings. We are dueling it out this month at the movies!!! Our hostesses for April came up with the theme of "Movie Night." Melina, the hostess for the Dazzler's team sent us a great kit to work with. And since her kids think there is no better movie than Toy Story....we received adorable stamped images by EK Success of Buzz Light Year and Woody. The kit also included designer paper from the DCWV Fall Stack and Toy Story DP from Creative Memories. Also in the kit were star buttons, silver brads, twine and a chocolate chip top note embossed with the Cuttlebug spots and dots folder.

So our goal for the duel is to use all or part of the kit to create a card.

I picked the Woody image because my youngest daughter is really into Toy Story right now and she loves Woody! I absolutely love the Toy Story paper and knew I had to use it. I used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Summer Sun and Brocade Blue cardstock. I colored Woody with my Copic markers and added the twine to the card and the star buttons. I adhered the buttons with glue dots and then added a few more paper punched stars (used the small star punch from SU) and put the silver brads into the middle of the stars.

Thanks for stopping by the duel and please check out all the other Darlings' creations (see my sidebar).
