Here it is, at the last minute (so to speak)!
The Dueling Darlings are at it again, and since it's the 15th of the month, it's time to post our creations from Debbie, our lovely hostess this round.
And what a great kit she sent us, the cutest little Valentine's images, a sweet sentiment for the inside, pretty DP, ribbons, flowers, brads, all kinds of goodies to work with. One fun element was a wonderful doily die cut. This is my first to use a doily die cut and I was so happy to get to play with it.
I decided to use the red & white polka dot DP that was in the kit as a backdrop for the doily. Each layer is popped up so it has considerable depth but I wasn't successful in capturing it in my photos. The card base is die cut with my Big Shot, then stamped and clear embossed with a fun stamp of candy hearts. I just love that stamp!
Debbie included the sweet "love" charm that I hung off of the doily on the bottom right side. The adorable mouse & heart is colored with SU markers and I replaced the flower on the image with a bright green bling-flower! Used Nesties scallops to cut out the image and the green layer behind it, dragging the edges over the stamp pad to give them some color. The ribbon is something from my stash, it has tiny pink polka dots on it (I know, can you believe that I used so much PINK??) Ha ha!
Here's a peek at the inside. I oval punched the sentiment, dividing it up into two segments, accented again by a bit of green bling. Since I was gone over 14 hours yesterday between work and church, Hubby & I are celebrating Valentine's Day tonight (although we don't actually do much to celebrate it) and is his card. Debbie: hubby said he likes the mouse! And he likes pink more than I do LOL!!!
Actually, I had a lot of fun with this kit. We were challenged to post who we thought the saying related to in our life. Well, so very many people flooded my mind. Family (here and in heaven), of course my hubby (even when he's difficult ha ha!) and so very many dear friends. I can't even count how many times my friends have helped me through tough times when I didn't think that I could cope! And my friends in the Dueling Darlings are counted amongst those friends that I rely on for cheer, support and fun! Love you all!
