Dueling Darlings Friends

It is the 15thof the month and that means we get to show off another Dueling Darlings challenge. Carol and Melina are the Darlings who came up the theme for August.   Carol is a Diva and Melina is a Dazzler. 

The theme for this month is  "Friends are the Family we Chose for Ourselves".  This is in keeping with the anniversary theme of being together for four years!

I laughed out loud when I open the package from Carol!  First, the image made me hoot and then there were about 5 or 6 different sentiments for us to chose from.  Then--the papers--lavender and purple tones.  Those are so not Carol and probably not me either.  But onward.......................

Here is the inside of my card:

Image/SentimentArt Impressions--the Girlfriend Series "Laughing", unknown sentiment

Card Stock/Patterned PaperGeorgia Pacific White; Stampin' Up Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry; PTI Lavender Moon; Various Patterned Papers

Ink—Memento Tuxedo Black

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 wonderful cards that have been created this month!

Look at you and me using the same papers, colors and making the same girl gray haired! How funny is that?!

I love the die cut you used on the image. It is perfect. The little placement of the dew drops looks really good.

Super fun kit - I had to dig for the purples too! Great job.

Fabulous colours and image Barb, they make for a great card, topped to perfection with that sentiment!

Melina said...

Too cute! I love the lace behind the image. Purple is one of my favorite colors! :)

What a great card. I love the purples and the fiber and hearts behind the image. The dew drop embellishments are perfect. Everything on this card goes together so nicely.

You did an amazing job on this card Barb....and you are soooo correct. This is not my color combo at all but thought I'd work outside the box for this made everything work together fabulously!!! Great job my sweet friend.....♥

Hi Barb! I'm late to the party but was it ever worth the effort! Love your card! What terrific curvy panels for those "best friends"! Love how you used the fibers and ribbon on the purple panel, the tear drop and flower accents! Love how you used that fun sentiment on the inside of the card. Great job!!
I treasure the friendship we share on the DDD!!
