Dueling Darlings - August

It is duel {or should I say deal} time for the Dueling Darlings.  The Dazzlers and Divas have a great theme this month of 'Are You Game'?!'

So you know that the theme made me think of a player.  Then it made me giggle at the phrase 'don't hate the playa, hate the game'.   Then I had to listen to the group Player.  You know that you have to sing this one!  There was also a cute boy I once knew in high school that would sing a song he made up....red you win, black you lose, it all depends on the cards you choose!   I wonder what happened to him.....okay I just looked on Facebook he is a sales manager for a pharmaceutical company!  For sure they don't know about his song or his torrid past!!!  Don't hate the playa, hate the game!  LOL

Kelly, was our hostess this round.   She sent the most adorable kit to work with!   Whipper Snapper's Pair of Aces for the image and a oogle of papers and embellies.   

Our extra challenge was to use at least two DP's, the wood charm, one ribbon, one button and one bling item.   Oh my.   Buttons.   They frighten me just a little.   They are reminiscent to sewing!   LOL   So, I did use two DP's, the stripes and I covered the wood charm in a DP.  I actually had floss to put in my button {are you impressed yet?}.  I used Distress Stickles so they would not be as shiny, although they do not photograph well.  With that, here is my creation for this round.




Please be sure and visit all of the Dueling Darlings.   Their cards will amaze you!   Blog links are on the right side bar.   Have a great day!

Wonderful card, Tami! Great neutral color theme. Very clever use of the dsp, especially using on the wood diamond piece. Your image is beautifully colored...lov the decled edge on the image and layering panels. Very creative use of the ribbon and bling on the striped panel. Love the floss accent on the button so perfectly placed. GREAT CARD!!!
