The CCL in a Prickly Duel

It's the 15th of February - and a snowy one here in my world. We're actually in a Winter Storm Warning; most things are closed for the day and they are telling people to stay home if at all possible. Sheesh! I've been staying home for over 11 months now; nothing new here.

Wait! There is something new - a new duel! The Classy Card Ladies are dueling it out today with some cards made from the fabulous kits our hostesses sent us. This month's hostesses are the sister duo of Suzy for the Diamonds and Debby for the Pearls. They chose a fun theme for this month's duel - Cactus! 

They're Texans, so I'm guessing they see Cactus regularly - and very little of the white stuff we're seeing here today in the mid-west... but I digress.

I'm a Pearl so I created with the fun kit she sent us (THANK YOU DEBBY!)... 

Image: Impression Obsession Cactus Mailbox (Debby received permission from the company to share this image with us, I think it's awesome that they let her do that!) which she stamped it on Paper Studio CS with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and I colored it with Copic Markers

Designer Papers: Paper Studio Random Dot Blus, Floral Cactus, Floral Clusters with Leaves, and Vintage Green Ornate

Embellishments: Floral Garden Grosgrain Ribbon, Twine from her stash, Paper Studio Floral Embellishments in Pink and Yellow, Crafters Square Sequins, Eyelet Outlet Green Enamel Dots, and Jot Colorful Paper Clips

Be sure to check out the other Classy Card Ladies cards, too...

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Debby asked us to use our own sentiment so I used the Hero Arts Hello stamp for my sentiment. I also used SU Rococo Rose for my card base and the SU Oval Punch and the My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle Die to make my card.

I love your card Jeanette. It looks like you got a fun kit to play with. As always you did a wonderful job with your kit. I see you did the inside as well. Such a wonderful touch.
