Dueling Darlings ~ Are You Game?

It is the 15th of the month and that means another Dueling Darlings challenge.  Our hostess this month for the Divas is Kelly.  The theme that Jeanette, the hostess for the Dazzlers and Kelly—who both happen to be the inspiration for this wonderful group of ladies in the first place-- came up with is “Are You Game””!

In celebration of National Scrabble Week, let’s use the theme “are you game”?  Kelly sent a cute Whipper Snapper stamp—Pair of Aces!  What a sweet image.  She also sent a whole slew of items to use on the card and challenged us to use two of the papers, one button, one ribbon, one bling and the wooden “card suit” charm.  I think I met the challenge!  I made a 6x6 card as I wanted to make sure everything fit and try to not make it look too busy……………………………

Here is the inside of my card:

Image/Sentiment—Whipper Snapper Pair of Aces

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper—Stampin’ Up Riding Hood Red, Basic Black; Graphic 45-All Decked Out and Glitz in Town-Yours Truly Chevron patterned papers

Accessories—Copic Markers; SU Tab Punch, Apothecary Accents die, Paper Piercing Pack; PTI Yellow ribbon with Offray Black over the top; Nesties Curved Rectangles; Kaisercraft Rhinestones and Flourishes die cut wood piece playing card; Buttons; Spica Glitter Pen on her shoes and on floating hearts

Please be sure to stop in to see what all of the Divas as well the Dazzlers have created this month.  All of the blogs are on the left sidebar of my blog.  I am sure you will enjoy all of the creations for our Game! Thanks for joining us!!!!!!



I love those playing cards! What a fun kit and a great take on it with your card!!


What a fantastic way to incorporate everything! Love the inside as much as the outside. The 6x6 is a great choice and you've really made a keeper here!


How cute! I love the cards in the background. Kelly sent a great image! :)

WOW! Wonderful card, Barb. You used so many elements from the kit and put them together in a way that's a delight to the eye! Love the layout and how you used the red chevron dsp and Graphic 45 playing card dsp as the background. Beautifully die cut image and layering panel! Great use and placement of ribbon, prima flower, buttons and bling!!! Just gorgeous!
