Get Your Duel On

... and today that means FLIP FLOPS! ;)


If you hang around my blog any, you know that on the 15th of each month, we have a little friendly duel. Ther Dueling Darlings style!

This month Melina and Carol are the hostesses (Carol for the Divas and Melina for the Dazzlers). As hostesses they got their thoughts together and came up with a theme. Then they each sent card kits to there respective team members and today we get to show our stuff.

THANK YOU MELINA AND CAROL for being terrific hostesses!!!


Theme:

FLIP FLOPS AND SUNSHINE


Oh my goodness........... Melina sent us a wonderful kit!!! It was just full of fun embellishments, papers and images.

I've already apologized to her for slapping together my card way too quickly to do much in the way of style or creativity. The kit arrived just two days before my international trip........ so I had to rush. I'm also rushing as I put this post together, so unfortunately I'm not going to link it to the other Dueling Darling blogs... but you can find them easy enough - they are all listed in my left side bar.

Okay, enough chatter................

here's my card:










Here's the inside of my card:




Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Perfect card for the theme. Love the flip flops sticking out of the sands and the way you used the bling on the sun.

This is very cute and so clever how you did the sand. I also like those little gems in the sun.
