Dueling Darlings Dazzlers - January

Happy Monday and Happy Martin Luther King Day to those in the U.S. Today is a day of service here. My DH and I will be volunteering at Opportunity House this morning. I didn't get to go there last week since I had the flu. Still not feeling totally well but we'll see how it goes.
In November a dear friend of mine (hi, Shelly) invited me to join a group on Splitcoast Stampers. The groups sends kits to each of the members and the members then design a card using the supplies sent and the instructions given. So our group will post on the 15th of each month. Today is my first post as a Dueling Darling. We are divided into Dazzlers and Divas. I am a Dazzler. Our supplies this month included calendars for January 2018 along with some lovely paper. Here's what I came up with.


If you look closely you can see that the silver card stock is glitter paper. Gorgeous in real life. And the black card stock is also textured. You may be able to see the texture a bit in the bottom corners or on the sentiment strip. To create the corners I used an old Stampin' Up! punch. The calendar I die cut with MFT Inside and Out Stitched Rounded Squares inked with Fired Brick distress ink. The heart was stamped with Abandoned Coral distress ink over the date of a friend's birthday. I tied a red ribbon through the card and added some red gemstones. I embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I am looking forward to more fun with this group. My turn to make the kit comes in March so stay tuned to see what my partner and I come up with! In the right hand column I have a list of the other Dazzlers. Click on each of their names to go to their blogs and see what they did with this kit. It's always fun to see how everyone has come up with different things using the same supplies. Thanks for stopping by!

Way to go Donna!!! Love, love, LOVE the black, silver and red color scheme - so smart and elegant! Sorry that I forgot the embellishments with the kits. Honestly, I think you did better with your own! Can't wait to see what you send us for March.
