Dueling Darling Divas July Card---Garden of Friendship

Inside of my card:

Here is my card for round #12 of our very friendly duel.

Laura Jean—LJ--is our great hostess for the Divas for July and sent some awesome items for us to play with and create a sweet card.  Terry is the hostess for the Dazzlers and they came up the theme of Garden of Friendship.  This is for all things found in the garden, especially friendships that grow and grow! As a little extra this month, they would like us to share a friendship we have.  First, I want to say I consider each and every one of the Darlings in our group a friend—even though I have only met three in person (and one will be added to the list by the time this is posted—Debbie!)  We chat and chat in the DDD thread along with other threads on SCS, text and email each other—just like Real Life Friends!!!  On my bucket list is to meet each of the wonderful ladies who are a part of this awesome group!

Card Details:

Image/Sentiment— Gardening Flopsey (My Favorite Things

Paper—SU Daffodil Delight and Not Quite Navy; Gina K White; October Afternoon Patterned Paper

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Accessories— Nestabilities, Lady Bug Button, Red/Green Buttons, Red solid and Red Gingham Ribbon, Spiral Clip, Copics

Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas created.  Then, there is a link to Jeanette's blog, to see what the Dazzler's gardens look like.
