Springtime in Texas

It's time for a little duel, Dueling Darling style. Two teams; two hostesses; one theme. The duel is on.

This month our hostesses are Suzy (Divas) and here sister Debby (Dazzlers). 

Their theme is...


They are from Texas, in case you're wondering.

I'm a Dazzler so I received a kit and instructions from Debby. Here's what she included in her kit...

Images/Sentiment from Deadbeat Designs stamped with Color Box Royal Blue Pigment Ink on 140# White Cardstock

Designer Papers from Paper Studio

Offray Ribbon and Pearls, Parklane Blue Gems, and Twine from her stash

Thanks Debby!

Here's the inside of my card:

Be sure to stop by all the Dueling Darling Blogs - you'll find links to both the Dazzlers and the Divas in my left side bar.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

The only thing I used to make my card other than what was in Debby's kit was some CS - Recollections Black and White and SU Blueberry Bushel.

I colored the image with Copic Markers.
