To Die For with Thanks


It's a VERY SPECIAL day today - it's the Dueling Darling Challenge! PLUS it's the day for a new Sweet Stampin' Challenge.

So hang on... here we go..............................



The Sweet Stampin' Challenge Theme: To Die For 
Use at least one die - I used 5.

Sponsor: Yours or Mine Papercrafts - $10 Voucher

I hope you'll participate in the Sweet Stampin' To Die For Challenge!


Here's the inside of my card: 



The DUELING DARLINGS is a group that's been together for about 4 years now. WOW! Each month two of the members (a DIVA and a DAZZLER) put their heads together and come up with a theme and put together kits for the team member to use, based on that theme.

This month Diva Kadie and Dazzler April came up with the theme - THANK YOU. Their idea was to use the sentiment only, no image this month.

THANK YOU for a great theme, Kadie and April!

The kit the DAZZLERS received included these items:

 • Recollections and Prima flowers, misc sizes/shapes
• Favorite Findings and Basic Grey buttons
• Offray Twill ribbon (tan stitched)
• Craftsmart sheer ribbon (from Germany) – mint blue
• Kaiser mini pearls
• Recollections paper rope – white
• Recollections Fall Foliage paper doilies – beige
• DSP from SU! ~ Le Jardin (in yellow, green, beige, blues)
• Kraft cardstock, PTI
• Images: Thank you (Flourish) from Inkadinkadoo and Thank you (cursive) from Michaels $1.50 bin


Now, let's check out the other Dueling Darling blogs....

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used in addition to items in the DAZZLER kit I received was a piece of cardstock for my card base - Stampin' UP! Blue Bayou.

This is really pretty. That's a great sentiment... so large and I like the flourish around it. Fabulous flower which really accents the sentiment. I also like the different textures... paper, ribbon, buttons, twine... very nice!
