Dueling Darlings October

 The Dueling Darlings, aka the Dazzlers and Diva's have received card making kits from our hostesses Deb (Dazzlers) and Judy (Divas). The theme they chose is "Falling into New Friendships". 
 I colored my cards using Prismacolor Pencils.  I have not had them out of their tin in AGES! I have a list of color matches, and tried my best to coordinate the colors. I used the Sketch from MoJo Monday 419.  I had just a small swatch of Cajun Craze cardstock.

 I made this card using a theme for the SCS HYCCT 1510- make a card with a tag on it. On the inside of this card, I added DP down the edge and used a Cajun Pumpkin that came in the kit.

 The sweet image chosen for the Dazzlers is called Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch by My Favorite Things. Sentiment also MFT Chalkboard Greetings and Sweetest Pumpkin in the Patch.

Super cute, Shel! You were really on a roll with the card kit - both of these are just adorable and so beautifully designed. I love the bold and rich colors and your addition of the embellishments at just the right places ~ and the tag card for the HYCCT is a great touch! I'm sure it will score a 'blue ribbon' in all those challenges - good luck!

Glad we were able to "fall" into friendship! Blessings! ♥
