What Not to Wear Duel

Hello friends!

This month's Duel theme was..."WHAT NOT TO WEAR to this year's holiday party." 

Our hostess, Jeanette, sent us a kit that was "full of papers and embellishments that at first glance look atrocious."  The image had to include clothing in some way.  So we were to take the atrocious looking kit and make a card and we could alter the kit items to make them appear more compatible. 

There was so much in the kit I could have made four cards...but here are the two that I made.  I hope I met the challenge and made my cards "wearable."

The buttons, brads, designer paper and image are from the kit. I only used some of my own cardstock and colored with my copics.

Please check out the other Dueling Darlings "wearable" cards. See my sidebar for their blogs.

Thanks for stopping by.

Debbie, not one, but TWO great cards! Way to go, girl! You do such a nice job coloring and with your layouts too. Much classier than what I ended up with this month! ha ha!
Great job!

Deb, your cards are gorgeous!!! Very fashionable, in fact. I don't know how you did it, because I saw the items you had to work with. LOL!

I love the fact that both cards are so different from the other. And both are fabulous. Wow! What a clever idea to use the floss in the handle of the cup brad. Love that! I also love the way you incorporated the papers. Awesome!!!

Thank you for participating in this month's fashionable duel!
