Classy Card Ladies' January Duel!

A group of friends on Split Coast Stampers have been "dueling" on the 15th of the month for years. This year we did a refresh, changed our name and team names and Bang! We're off for a fun year of dueling again!

This month "The Pearls" (my team) hosted by the lovely Jeanette, and "The Diamonds",  hosted by the effervescent Kelly chose "Winter Fun" as the theme.

Here's my card with Jeanette's great kit:

I folded the card off-center by about an inch to give me a panel on the right and die cut 3 hearts from the pretty papers that Jeanette included.

The image is colored with Stampin' Up Blenders and the snowball and ground are accented with Stickles.

Here's the opened card where I cut apart the sentiment and stair-stepped it.

Kit contents included:

CC Designs "Snowball Heidi" and sentiment by Close To My Heart's "Flakey Friends" collection.

All designer papers are from Recollections "Fa La La" paper pad.

Red snowflake ribbon is from Joann's and the teal ribbon is Offray.

Jeanette's generous kit also included rhinestones, sequins, a wooden snowflake (that I really wanted to use but couldn't work it in) and a charm with a snowflake brad.  I'm thinking another card is in order to feature these goodies!

Time for me to run over to my folks' house and get their dinner ready, but when I get back home today I'll finish this post with the names of everyone on the Pearls and the Diamonds.  I will also update my side bar with links to their galleries or blogs to make it easy for you to visit and admire their cards.

Good bye for now!

A very cute card! The different size card really adds to the look with the extra panel for the hearts. Great idea!
