Dueling Darlings - April

It is time for the April duel with the Dueling Darlings from SCS.   I am with the Diva girls and Melina is with the Dazzler girls.  It is our month to host the duel and we are excited for the cards we are about to see!

The theme for the month is "I picked a flower for you".  The challenge is to use a piece of green ribbon on your card somewhere.   Mine is located on the sentiment panel.

You know that I am into the 'use what'cha got' theme.   Well, I did see this little stamp on clearance for $2.00, so I thought it fitting for the challenge. Otherwise, It would have been a floral stamp and most of the floral stamps that I have are old school two step stamps or solid.

So, with my big $2.00 purchase, we have Lizzy Dressed from Great Impressions Stamps.  The sentiment is from Mary Engelbreit.  I had to add some DP, as I did not have enough multiple sheets for everyone for the theme.  Good thing that clearance sale had 4 for a $1.00 My Mind's Eye DP.   I basically rolled out for around $5.00 including tax.  Sweet!

I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has created for our April duel. You can see their creations too at the blog links on the right sidebar.

Thank you DD's, for making our group so much fun!

WHAT!!?!?!? No song? You always give us a song to listen to. Did I miss seeing it?

That being said... WOW! Your card is so pretty! Love the bright cheerful colors, and that cool image. (What a bargain! Or, should I say "splurge" since you are into using what you have?)

Thank you for hosting this month's duel!
