Dueling Darlings

I have joined a group of ladies called the Dueling Darlings-split up into the Diva's and the Dazzlers.   Each month, on the 15th, we create using a card kit that is sent to us.  This month, our theme is Tutti Fruity.
 Jeanette is always sprucing up the inside of her cards as well, so I had to add give that a go as well.....


I am a Dazzler- we used an image from Jeanette, and the Diva's used an image from Kelly.
Image- Penny Black- Hedgy Gift
Sentiment- Riley- Apples are Dangerous
DP- DCWV My Sunshine Stack
Darice Rhinestones
Hobby Lobby Decorative Trim Ribbon
Hobby Lobby- Natural Hemp Cord
Recollections- Apple Brad

I added SU-Green Seam Binding
Image colored with Copic Sketch markers

I used a few challenges making my card:
The Sketch is from MoJo Monday #415
Fashionable Stamping Challenge- Words
Penny Black Saturday- 3 or more DP
Simon Says Stamp- Use a Stamp

Thanks again for inviting me to join you ladies : ) You can check out the other versions of this kit by following the links on my side bar. Visit the Diva's too : )

Shelly, oh my goodness! I am so tickled that you have joined the Dueling Darlings!!! And am just as excited as can be that you are a Dazzler! WELCOME!

And what a talented and DAZZLING Dazzler you are... your card is amazing! I never ever ever - in a million years - would have thought to cut apart the Riley quote... and it is a brilliant and gorgeous idea! I'm in awe!

Your card front is not only beautiful... but you also decorated the inside. WOO HOO!!!
