Something New with the Dueling Darlings

Last Tuesday was the Dueling Darling reveal day, but I was gone and was unable to participate on that day. So today is the day.

AND it's a twofer day because I also tried something new on this card, thanks to our wonderful Dazzler hostess Shelly.

This month Shelly (Dazzler) and Carol (Diva) hosted the Dueling Darlings. Their theme is...

Catch of the Day

Yes, it's a wonderful theme and Shelly's kit was full of fabulous stuff! Thank you, Shelly!

The kit contents:

Images - Clear Dollar Stamps 
Lure DP- Paper Studio
Blue Water DP- Recollections
eyelets- Paper Outlet
Burlap and rhinestones- $1.50 bin
Dies- oval die- Spellbinders; fish and underwater swirl-Unbranded
Cardstock- Blue- SU Pacific Point
Fish dies- Cherry Cobbler, Tangerine and yellow is a shimmery paint over white.
Yellow cardstock- unknown

The only thing of my own that I used on my card was some Recollections Black and Stampin' UP! Pacific Point CS.

Here's my card:

Now, as I mentioned, I tried something new on this card. As you might know... I do NOT do eyelets! In fact, I don't even own any (I got rid of them a long time ago). But... Shelly included a special kind of eyelet in the kit. It doesn't require any special tool. She said you just insert it in a hole and use a pen to press the back down. So I gave it a try.

I will say this - I'm glad I tried it - BUT I will not do so again. Nope... I still don't do eyelets.

Here's the inside of my card:

I hope you stopped by all of the Dueling Darling blogs last week to check out their "Catch of the Day" cards. If not, you can find links to their blogs in my left side bar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Love your card - inside and out! So, you did not that little hook eyelet? It looks fab by the way! Love the angle you used on the sentiment tab- how fun! Thanks so much for joining in even when on the road and the kit being late and all!

That fishhook eyelet is perfect for this great fisherman design!! And what an awesome surprise inside! Sensational card, Jeanette!
