Dueling Darling Dazzlers...

Yep, that is a mouthful!

I am sure you are curious as to what the Dazzlers are.....(Even if you aren't, pretend for my sake, okay?  I am the sensitive type.)  Well, the Dazzlers is a group of crafters that are sharing kits.  There are 7 of us that work off the same kit and see what we can make.  There are also 7 Dueling Darling Divas; and while they don't work from the same kit as the Dazzlers, the theme for the month is the same.

This month, our hostess was Jeanette and she sent:
The image: Sweet KiKi LaRue from CC Designs,
The DP: You Scream, Ice Cream for Doodle Design, Inc. along with a piece of teal vellum from Colorbok,
Embellies: ribbon; Dashes, Dots and Checks from Michael's, Buttons from Paper Studio, a clip from WalMart, and a chipboard letter from K&Co.

I hoarded the chipboard letter and the buttons, but used all of the other parts of the kit!


Thanks for waiting patiently to see my card....I just had to get the details out of the way....

What do you think?  And just so you can compare, here are what the other Dueling Darlings came up with:
Dazzlers                                   Divas
April (me)                                        Barb
  Debbie                                          Carol
   Jeanette                                         Jamie
   Melina                                           Joan
  Michelle                                         Judy
   Paola                                            Kelly
Terry                                               LJ
Please leave them some love too....

And just for your viewing pleasure, with the 'leftovers' I made a corner bookmark.... 

I think I will be sending these off to a friend! 

Thanks for stopping by!
Huggz,
April
