Time to Duel

It is the 15th of March and that means my blogging buddies and I got out our swords shamrocks and dueled it out this month!

Kadie and I were co-conspirators this month and this was our challenge (and, what I included in the Dazzlers kit:
Hello Duelers!

What a great theme we have for you this month!

Being that we post on the 15th, we decided to go with the obvious, St. Patrick's Day! Rather than wishing everyone luck, we would like you to somehow use the enclosed Celtic Blessing. We are indeed blessed to be part of this group!!

The kits are filled with things we hope you will enjoy using to bless another! Please, let us know of a recent RAK you have initiated or been the recipient of!

Happy creating!

All items are from my stash:
3 gold brads
Picture clips in white, black and brown
Kaiser paper flowers
Assorted ribbon
Paper: Heidi Grace Shimmer Foil Clover
Karen Foster Shamrocks
Lucky Limeade
Computer generated Celtic Blessing
MFT ala mode 'Wishing You Luck
'

My card is rather plain...I just couldn't seem to use all of the 'accessories' I put in the kit. I loved them when I gathered them, but wanted to use the current deconstructed sketch (#93) and it all didn't work for me....lol ( Isn't that the way it goes?)
I also want you to know that I do realize my blessing is a wee bit crooked....it didn't matter how hard I tried, it stayed crooked...lol.... So, I left it! And, you will notice that I took a wee bit of liberty with the original sketch....



Please check out the rest of the duel....the love luv too!!

I still can't believe we chose the exact same stamp! Great minds do think alike though, as the saying goes.

I LOVED being paired up with you, April!! So much fun and your card is exactly that too. Super fun! And you're too hard on yourself, I don't see anything crooked! You did a great job with this sketch--no one said you have to use all the goodies! Love your card! Thanks again for being my Duel buddy! ♥

Cute card April--I think it is a hoot that you both used the same image-and not on purpose!

Love the layout of your card--very pretty!

I am such a dork! I thought to myself, 'I don't think I have that paper'! LOL That is what I get for the eleventh hour and a throw together! LOL

Your card turned out cute. I like how you placed the sentiment.

Great job!
