Are You Game?

Happy August 15th!!  And, what makes it so great, you ask? The 15th is when the Dueling Darlings duel it out with card making. Our hostesses for this month were Jeanette for the Dazzlers and Kelly for the Divas. The Dazzler received a fabulous kit from Jeanette and a fun theme entitled "Are You Game?" Our kit included:

Image: Art Impressions UM3511 Bingo
DP: Tessa Collins Freestyle Collection
Embossed Paper: Tim Holtz Embossing Folders by Ellison (Mini Bingo Card on SU! Tempting Turquoise; Mini Rays on SU! Pumpkin Pie and Mini Ticket on SU! Pixie Pink)

Embellishments Included
Morex Corp. Organdy Ribbon
Prima Flowers
Studio 18 Rhinestones
Button & Brads (vendors unknow)
A Scrabble tile

An extra challenge to our card making was to do something we had never done before. Well, I ran out of time to come up with something new and spectacular but I did find this outstanding layout in the SCS gallery and used that for my layout....had never used it before! Does that count? ;) And I did decorate the inside of my card this time, something I don't usually do.

Thanks for stopping by. Please check out all the Darlings creations. See my sidebar.
