Dueling Darlings May 2020- Bargain Hunters

 For the May Dueling Darlings, our hostesses Jeanette (Dazzlers) and Kelly (Divas) are taking us 'Bargain Hunting'.

Jeanette sent us the following kit:
Image- Sparkle and Sprinkle (bought on clearance) stamped on Recollections #110 lb cardstock (with a coupon) using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
DP is from Recollections Home Basics Paper pad (40% off). 
Ribbon-we had an assortment in the kit- all bargains- the red grosgrain and the blue organdy
Embellishments- again, an assortment- I used Puffy Dots from the Dollar Store. 

I added a strip of DP and the sentiment in the kit on the inside of the card.

Here are the links for all of the Dazzlers and the Divas.  I look forward to seeing all of the different versions or interpretations of the kit!

I am nothing, if not a bargain hunter!!! In fact, I'm going to have to venture out to Hobby Lobby today in my mask to buy watercolor paper, but I will be clutching my 40% coupon for sure!

What beautifully colored flowers on this fun layout, Shelly!! Great card!
