Where there is a tree.....

...there is a duel!
Yep, time for the Dueling Darlings to post their challenge cards for the month.

Melina asked use to create with Jeanette (our fearless leader) in mind.  We all know that Jeanette is the Queen of Patterned

Here is what she wrote:
Hello Dazzlers!
My challenge to you for the month of October is to create a card with the theme of Trees and to include patterned paper somewhere on your creation.
I can't wait to see what you come up with! I hope this is okay with everyone that you are receiving a challenge instead of a "full on" kit. I hope to have a partner the next time my turn comes around. 
The Divas are getting a challenge also with a different theme. It's a little mystery as to what each team will be making.
Have a great day!

Make sure you check out the rest of the DUEL!
We all love luv!

Dazzlers          Divas

Michelle               Judy

Great idea using Christmas trees! This card turned out really cute.

Darlene said...

Hey, this is just GREAT! So bright and cheery and Christmas-y! Frosty has a winter wonderland of decorated trees behind him, just like our Forest creates at her home each year. Good thinking!

If a tree falls in the Forest, is Jeanette there to hear it? :)

SUPER cute card - I forgot I had this paper and what a gorgeous idea to use it now in Autumn! I think it should be Christmas ALL year!

Gorgeous creation - just as you are!

THank you for being a true blue beautiful friend :)

April..... I am so excited to see so many wonderful cards created with my love of Christmas trees and designer paper. WOW! Our Melina sure was sneaky with her challenge... and as a result, I am truly blessed!

Thank you for choosing such a fun way to showcase trees and designer paper on your card. I love that snowman, too! How creative to use those strips of red for your sentiment, too. I always learn so much from you!

THANK YOU, my friend! I'm glad we are Dazzlers together!!!

Cute! I love the DP. And how perfect for J, with all those Christmas trees! Is that a border punch of trees at the bottom? I love it. Great card for our leader.
