Today Isn't Just About Taxes...

It's also the day for Dueling!

The Dueling Darlings post their duel creations on the 15th of every month, so today is the day.

This month Tami and Melina are the hostesses. They chose a really fun theme for us...

I Picked a Flower for You

And Melina sent a FANTASTIC kit to the Dazzlers. (I'm sure Tami sent an equally AMAZING kit to the Divas, but I didn't have the privilege of seeing it, since I'm a Dazzler.) THANK YOU, Melina and Tami!

Melina's kit included the following items:

Image - Whimsy Stamps "Fistful of Flowers"
Sentiment - CTMH "Sweet & Lovely"
Cardstock - Stampin' UP! Very Vanilla
Designer Papers - DCWV
Die Cut - Wonky Cloud - MFT, Spellbinders - Dalia
Baker's Twine - CTMH
Buttons - MFT
Ribbon - Wal-Mart
Metal Emellishment & Flower Bling - from her stash

Melina also told us that we HAD to use the green ribbon on our cards. (Not a problem, Melina! I love using ribbon!)

Now, before you see my card, you need to know, I didn't use many things from the kit......... because I thought the image was soooo cute! And I wanted  her to be the focal point of my card.

Isn't she adorable!?!?!?!

Here's the inside of my card:

Please be sure to go to the other Dueling Darling blogs to see what they made - you can find the links in my left sidebar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! 
(Wasn't that more fun than standing in line at the Post Office to pay your taxes???)

Other than the items in Melina's kit, the only item I used on my card was a piece of Stampin' UP! Wild Wasabi Cardstock for the base of my card.

Oh my goodness! This is adorable! I love how softly you colored the image (she is darling) and the wonky border on the side is great! The little metal embellishment is to cute used around the ribbon and baker's twine! I'm in awe of that ribbon treatment! You do classy work J! :)
