Dueling Darlings - March

I wasn't sure I was going to make the due date for the duel this month!   Just in the nick of time, this round.  

LJ, was our hostess this month.  She sent the most adorable image and sentiment.  I just had to use both!  The kit was full of great papers and embellies.  Thank you, LJ. 

In real life, the umbrella is not quite so orange in color and her skirt is blended a bit better than in the photograph.   I was on the run, so had to go with what kept showing through. 



I was taking the picture of the card and I hear this odd noise in the living room.   Oh...that would be our cat Mia knocking down all of the pillows off of the sofa like a bulldozer. You know the sofa she is not supposed to be on. I walk over and Mia does this 'wanna pet my cute self' thing.  How can you get mad at that?!




Please be sure and check out all of the Dueling Darlings.  Their blog links are on the right sidebar.  Have a great day!

Hi Tami! LOVE YOUR GORGEOUS CARD! It's got such a rich, elegant look to it. The colors are just yummy and I loved how you paired the dsp with the ribbon and flowers and that brad and metal flower on the cleverly cut sentiment panel are just perfection!

What a cutie your cat is! Thanks for the sharing his mischievous story and picture.

Love this card Tami! I really like how you placed everything on this one! The image cut out, the ribbon and flower, and love the way you cut out the sentiment (I wouldn't have been able to do that because it's not a perfect rectangle)!

Great job :-)

Mia was just jealous of the gorgeous card you were creating. She wanted to remind you of how cute she is!
What a great kit that LJ sent and you really did it justice. Those papers are wonderful and your choice of colors for the image are perfect. Great job!
