Holographic Dueling Darlings!

Here we are on the 15th of the month and it's time for another Duel!  

The ever-so-creative Terry and I are partners this year and this is our month to choose the theme.  A while back some paper by Pink & Main caught our eyes. "Holographic Set 2" and the rest is history, haha!

I put together a kit of items that I thought could further the holographic theme and sent them out to my team mates.

Pink & Main's "Holographic Set 2" papers

Die cuts with Altenew's "Fine Frames Diamonds" die set - also cut onto the Pink & Main's holographic stock

Say it With Stamps by Beck Moore, by Photoplay, Birthday images and sentiment. 

Sparkly and Gem laden ribbons from Merchant 41

Gems from Paper Studio

Here's my card:

It was a bit of a trick to get the fun holographic papers to photograph at all, so the card is tilted toward the light and maybe it gives you an idea.

I fussy cut out the balloon shapes onto one of the holographic papers, and used 3 others behind them. The gift and sentiment panel are colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

I really hit the jackpot at Hobby Lobby and found some great gem/holographic ribbons for the kits. Hopefully everyone had a good time with their kit.  After so many years of Duels it's getting to be a challenge to come up with a new idea!  But I wouldn't trade this group of friends for anything!

OK!! Time for me to admire the Galleries and Blogs of the other Darlings. Thanks for stopping by!

A fabulous card Darlene - loving the contrast between the angular geometric shapes behind the circles of the balloons. That band of rhinestones is amazing!!
