Dueling Darlings Cool Creations

It is the 15thof the month and that means another Dueling Darlings challenge. Our hostesses for July are Debbie for the Dazzlers and I am the hostess for the Divas!
When we started to work on the theme early in June, there were about 10 ideas that were tossed out.  Some may come in the future--and there are a couple of interesting ones................   But--for this month, Debbie came up with us celebrating summer with a card of "Cool Creations"!  We also asked that each of the Darlings tell of their favorite summer cooler.  For me, it is frozen custard--from Culver's or Leon's or Kopp's-the restaurant that we visited when some of the Darlings visited my house in April. That was a treat after we stopped at Creative Pals, the home store of Whipper Snapper--which as usual is my chosen image for this duel!   The best flavors of frozen custard are Butter Pecan or Caramel Cashew!

Here is the inside of my card.

Barb, first... I'm jealous. Though I came to see all of you in April, I was too late for both frozen yogurt AND Creative Pals?? So not fair!

But.......... your lovely cards has soothed my feelings, because it really is adorable and brings a huge smile to my face. It definitely turned my frown upside down. ;)

Love the kit you put together - with the cute image, bright papers, and incredible embellishments... all of which are reflected in your GREAT card!

ADORABLE!!! Love the colors on this, they are so cheery! Very creative way to finish off the inside too. It's been a ton of fun seeing what the Divas made with your kit, it sure must be a great one!
