Dueling Darlings and Gardens!

It is the 15thof the month and that means we get to show off another Dueling Darlings challenge. Tami and Darlene are the Darlings who came up with the challenge and theme for the teams this month.  Tami is a Diva and Darlene is one of the Dazzlers.

The theme is Gardening. 
We had a cute moose image--Garden Riley.  Tami also sent along some sweet papers and using some of them was a great challenge.  Tami set a couple that were 1/4 circles and I really wanted to use one of them.  So--I trimmed part of one side off and put it in the corner of my card.  Tami also sent a variety of embellishments and I did try to use a few of them.

Tami also asked us to share a gardening tip--well.................  water and manure are two great tips for any gardener.  And--a greenhouse helps for spring planting in Wisconsin!

Here is the inside of my card with a Inky Antics Sentiment:

Great card Barb, I love that you used the quarter circle in this manner. I too wanted to use one of them but struggled. (I cut mine into a strip and used it). I know your greenhouse is amazing I too have a picture and your gardens are two thumbs up. Your talents in gardening are amazing and give one a peaceful feeling just having them surround you...Great job on your card and your gardens. I'm so blessed that you are my friend and that we are Divas together.

You did such a good job at using so many of the embellies in the kit! I love the yellow boots on the image!

Your greenhouse is great. I would probably have to turn it into a stamp room! ;)

Super sweet card, Barb!! Lovin' those half scallop circles of DP, very nice!! The shades of yellow, brown and touches of green are so pretty together. I also admire the flower in the upper corner!

Yes, manure is a great friend of gardens!

Maxine D said...

Lovely card Barb - love your dramatic choice of colour. I would love a green house, but I do pretty well with the manure/compost/worm 'juice' and water combination.
