Dueling Darlings Time

It's the 15th of the month already and this month Judy and I were in charge of the kits for the Dueling Darlings. So I sent out a variety of goodies to the ladies and here's what I came up with for my card.


Our theme this month was birthday. Here's what I included in the kit:
Images and sentiments from Art Impressions Wine Diva stamped on Neenah Crest Solar White card stock
Images and sentiments from My Favorite Things Happy Hippos stamped on Neenah Crest Solar White card stock
My Favorite Things die cut of Happy Birthday Circle Frame
4 pieces of designer paper (6x6): the balloon paper and the flowered paper is from the Paper Studio; the plaid papers are from an unknown source (I volunteer at a resale shop that supports a free preschool for children in the area. I am in charge of crafts and office supplies and get first pick at what comes in for donations. These came from a donation.)
Embellishments: 3 yellow brads; 1 small clothes pin; 1 section of Floral Garden Diamond Wrap; 15 inches of Doodlebug twine; 15 inches of shimmery ribbon (unknown origin); 5 sequin stars.

I used two of the paper sheets,the Art Impressions imageSome of the Floral Garden Diamond Wrap, black card stock and pink card stock for the base of my card. I used Spectrum Noir and Copic markers to color the image. I hope you will check out what the other Darlings have done with my kit. You can find their links in my side panel.
I am entering these challenges:
Thanks for stopping by today. I have a very busy next few days so I'm not sure what kind of crafty time I'm going to get. Take care!

Donna, your card is a delight! I love all the pretty papers and the "Wine Diva" is great with her "paper pieced" plaid chair!! Great design and use of embellishments too!! I had so much fun coming up with this plan for the March duel with you. I love that we both used similar stamps from the same stamp collection in our kits!! Great job!!

Oh, I just love that paper pieced chair! AND you used grandma paper. I should probably explain, since you probably don't know. I love me some grandma paper. By definition, any paper that looks like it could pass for wallpaper in a grandma's house is grandma paper! It takes a special touch to create with grandma paper and you did well!

Super cute card! Love your plaid chair!

This sentiment is perfect with the image. Love how you've paper pieced the chair to match the pretty pink plaid border too. The tiny rose floral looks sweet with the other colors, and of course the blue rhinestone bling finishes it off wonderfully. TFS & Hugs
