May Duel



I am so glad the sun is back and the grass is getting greener!

Judy and I were the hostesses for the May Duel.  And, of course, with anticipation of summer, our theme was May Flowers.

The Dazzler's kit contained...
Images & sentiments: Stampin’ Up! Bloomin’ Beautiful
DP: My Mind’s Eye-Kate & Co."Cambridge Court” Mini Flowers & Bouquet Paper 
Ribbon: Stampin’ Up! Rose Red Grosgrain & Coastal Cabana Stretch Ruffle Trim
Rhinestones & Pearls: Stampin’ Up!
Vintage Flowers adornments: Stampin’ Up!
Blue adhesive gems: Colorbok
Large Pearls: Michaels or Joann Fabrics
Here is my card:

I added Rose Red paper from Stampin' Up!  And used a technique I had not used in years, the "spotlight technique".

Thanks for stopping by.  Please visit all the Darlings blogs and check out their creations (see my sidebar).

Stop and smell the flowers!
