Happy Monday, sweet friends!
I can't believe it's been a week since I've posted - and even longer since I've crafted :( I've been absolutely swamped here with the 4 kids and their schools/schedules - not to mention their End of year Chorus shows, after school activities, appointments, Taylor Swift concert and more ::: whew! :::
And today is the 15th of the month and that means the Dueling Darlings post our card kits! This month, our kit was sent to us by Tami and this month's duel chosen by Tami (for the Divas) and Darlene (for the Dazzlers) chose the theme of: Flowers! What a beautiful theme. Tami sent us this beautiful stamped image of a sunflower by (I think!) Delta Creative Sunflower II. I colored it with prismacolor markers and added a bit of sunburst stickles to give it a bit more pop, and then propped it up on 3D dots. I fussy colored this one imagining that as God created the flowers, he created each one unique and beautiful! Tami also sent a matching Bloom sentiment so I added that to the inside of the card, and carried over some of the left over dsp to the inside as well. My eye went straight for the earthy colors of dsp and aside from the cardstock, everything is from Tami's kit. Overall, it's a pretty simple card layout but I'm happy with how this 'sunny' card turned out! :) This is one of those "I promise it looks better IRL" cards, LOL!
In addition to creating a card, Tami and Darlene asked us to share what our favorite flower is. My favorite flowers are tulips! I adore them! I fell in love with tulips when we first moved to Germany ~ my mom planted rows of them in a garden she created. We visited Holland one year and that was it - It was beyond replaceable as my favorite flower from them on :)
Coincidentally, my second favorite flower is the sunflower! We even have a field close to our home with wild sunflowers growing there and it's a gorgeous view, especially with the setting sun behind them. I'll try to take that picture one day for you :) Thank you, Tami, for a beautiful card kit to work with. I hope I did it justice, and really enjoyed working with the Sunflower image and your lovely card kit!
Big hugs, Bigger Blessings!
