Dueling Darlings Blessings

It is the 15thof the month and that means another Dueling Darlings challenge.  Since it is St. Patrick's Day on Tuesday, our hostesses Kadie for the Darlings and April for the Dazzlers went with that theme.  We were to create a card of blessing as we are all blessed to be a part of this wonderful group.

We are to also share a recent RAK we have initiated or been the recipient of.  I am a member of the Birthday RAK on SCS-so I sent out around 20 birthday cards each month to other RAK members.  I also can say that I have received a RAK card from pretty much every member of the Dueling Darlings and that makes my heart sing!

I love the vintage look of the papers and embellishments that Kadie sent--I wanted to use all of it....................  but I have lots left for more cards in the future! 

Here is the inside of my card and Kadie supplied us with the Celtic Blessing!

That green trim is such a stunning embellishment. Cute card.


Barb, you did a FANTASTIC job with this kit! Your card is so beautiful and I love how you've incorporated the papers, image and fringe!! And let's not forget the awesome inside of your card too!! I think your RAK program/ministry is amazing and such a blessing to so many. Thank you for being a blessing to me, my friend!


Oh Barb! The green trim at the bottom of your card is gorgeous! You did a great job with this kit :)


Awesome card, Barb! You got a lot of the kit onto your card, and she is colored beautifully - the yellow really pops! Awesome!

Oh, I pet that lace and it just did not work into my card. I love how it looks on yours.

The interior is just as cute as the exterior of your card. Great job!
