Dueling Darlings

It's September 15th and that means it is time to post my card for the Dueling Darlings monthly duel. 

This month the theme was as follows:  KEEP your extra items! That's right! From this month on, when you complete the Dueling Darlings cards, anything you DON'T use, keep it in a SAFE PLACE 6 months from now, after all the duels from all the divas and dazzlers have passed us by and September rolls around, that is what you will use! From the papers, to the ribbons, to the buttons to the all of left over, that will be your kit!

So here is  my card using leftover designer paper, white ribbon, white brads and the orange embossed "rays" paper.  I added the sentiment.  The sentiment and die cut shapes around it are from a set I bought from My Favorite Things quite some time ago and had been wanting to use. 

Please visit all the Darlings blogs to see their creations (see my sidebar).  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a relaxing weekend.
