Dueling Darlings - October

It is time to duel again!  It is the 15th and we are ready to go here with the Dueling Darlings from SCS. Welcome!

We have a bit of a different duel this month.  Melina, who is on the Dazzler team, is the hostess for both the Divas and Dazzlers. 

Melina, issued a challenge theme for each team.  The theme of our respective challenge(s) are in thought of our team leaders, Jeanette and Kelly.   The Diva's team leader Kelly, who loves animals and buttons.  That is our theme this round, Kelly, animals and buttons! We are to use an animal and a button on our card. 

I went on the hunt through my images from past image swaps, in search of 'something out of the box'.  I think I may have succeeded!   LOL  This cute little Penny Black image is called Bikini.  She is lovin' on some Popsicle, with a cute handbag.  Perfect!   The sentiment is from Create With TLC.

I tried to make my card in the footsteps of, Kelly.   The theme is for her warm and beachy climate.  The papers....well, I think she will like them as they were gifted to me from her!   I tried for bright colors, which is a bit out of my element.  I used lots of layers, flowers, buttons and bakers twine.  All things that Kelly works so well with.

I love the fact that Kelly always is thinking of others.  She makes our Diva team a pleasure to be on.  I am thankful to have her as a friend.  I hope she likes the piggy!!!!

Please be sure to see what the other girls have created.  Their blog links are on the right side bar under Dueling Darlings.



Have a great day!
