Dueling Darlings - May

It is time for the Dueling Darlings from SCS to post for the month of May!  Spring is in the Air is our theme this month.   The Diva's are be hosted by, Judy.

Judy, sent out the most amazing kit.  So pretty in nature.  There were so many goodies!  I was able to make two of this challenge card and have a whole bunch left over.  Thanks, Judy.

The image is from Stampin' UP!, Serene Spring.  The DP is from s.e.i. in the Field Notes collection.   The DP kind of had a 'grandma' feel to it....you know I like me some grandma! 

Our additional challenge question was to share what we like about the month of May.  When I was younger, it was that school was almost out for summer vacation.   Now, I associate the month of May with my parent's wedding anniversary, Mother's Day and my Grandma's birthday.   In fact, my Grandma will be 98 this year.  She loves birds and will receive one of these cards.

I hope you all have a wonderful month of May!

Wow! What a rich and vibrant card, Tami! Love this color combination...great matching of rich colors to the d.p. And your design, especially the d.p. panel. The butterfly ribbon is perfectly placed and adds to the richness of the card. The image is so beautifully colored and framed with the gold and dark blue. Awesome card!! Guess I may need to CASE this card. Thanks for the inspiration!!

Pretty card Tami. I really like the papers you received with Judy's kit. It was funny, when I first saw your card I thought...wow, she used cool paper that I didn't get.....and then I remembered that you are a Diva and I am a Dazzler....so we got different kits.

Cute Mia story :-)
