Dueling Darlings - It's Gone to the Men!!!!

No...there really are no men in the Dueling Darlings...but we did receive kits to make masculine/Father's Day cards.  The Dazzler received a great kit from our hostess, April.  The kit included:

Designer paper: Krafty Dots by Recollection; Out of Print/Storyteller by Basic Grey;                          Go Fish/Mini Fish by Carolyn Holt Desgins
Burlap and Pearls By Recollections
Ribbon and Bakers Twine (from April's stash)
Clothespin from SU!
Stamps: Favorite Occasions by JustRite and Totally Tool set from SU!

The design of my card is a square Joy Fold.  I used Crumb Cake and Always Artichoke cardstock.  I added a small strip of Baja Breeze to accent the blue in the fish on the designer paper.  I also added the Artichoke button at the bottom to keep the smaller card closed.



Thanks for stopping by and please be sure to visiting all the Dueling Darlings blogs to see their great creations!  Have a wonderful weekend!
