Dueling Darlings Have Gone to the Birds!

The Dueling Darlings were given a great theme this month from Jeanette and Kelly.

The theme was:  Birds of a Feather Flock Together.

This theme was chosen to celebrate the four years (in August) that this group has been dueling.  As Jeanette put it..."Through the years, through thick and thin, we've blessed each other in many ways and all those years later, we're still together - like a flock!"

So in celebrating the four years this great group has been dueling the theme was born.  Also on our card we had to have four of something.  Four flower, four brads, four different designer papers, etc.  I chose the flowers (well...and added an extra...so I have 5, but that is just because I am looking toward another terrific year of dueling.)  ;)

Here is my card:

And the inside...love this sentiment!

The image is a Penny Black Stamp and the Sentiment is from Great Impressions.  

Thanks for stopping by.  Please take a look at all the Dueling Darlings card creations.  You will find links to their blogs in my sidebar.

Deb, your card is such fun - and pretty, too! Love the way you cut/placed the quote inside and wow! You've colored the image beautifully!

I'm also loving the a-hem....... 4 + 1 flowers. Seems you over-achieved on this card! (BTW, I'm looking forward to another great DDD year, too.)

Love ya!
