DDD ~ Texas Bluebonnets!

 Hi friends!

I pray you are all welll and safe amidst the Coronavirus sheltering in.
My card today is for the Dueling Darlings group 
where 2 hostesses chose 1 theme and duel' with creating cards from kits.
This month, Suzy and her sweet sister Deb, chose the theme
and created absolutely sweet kits with Texas Bluebonnets and blue bell ice cream.

I'm a Diva so my kit is from Suzy.
She lives in Texas and said the magical moment of the blooming bluebonnets  
blanket the fields with a sea of blue!

I followed the sketch at Splitcoaststampers this week
and used her paper for the background, the stripes and the inside.
I colored the beautiful image from Deadbeat Designs in prismacolor makers
and used a wonky rounded stitched die from My Favorite Things to shape it.
 I carried over the design to the inside here:

If you are on SCS, you can see all the cards today
by visiting the Dueling Darlings thread and gallery.

I'm one of the hostesses next month and already sent them my card kits ~
stay tuned for what it could be!

Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings ♥

  8. Such a bright and cheery card. Love it.

  9. Kelly I HAVE to have this stamp! I even went over to Deadbeat but sadly they're closed now. Ugh! LOVE the stamp and love your card. The blue gingham is so pretty with this stamp. Nothing better than pretty bluebonnets and absolutely nothing better in the world than Blue Bell ice cream. If you're from Texas you have at least two cartons of this in your freezer!

  10. Wow this is a beautiful and happy card with a fabulous design x.

  11. We used the same DP combination! I love the colors together. I really like how you laid out the papers they look great that way. Such a cute card.

  12. The inside is as pretty as the outside, and I just love all the blue gingham! I love those flowers (we always called them blue bottles) and just enjoy looking at them with all that fabulous color! Well done!

  13. How very pretty! The sketch is lovely too. The coloring of the bluebells is wonderful! I have never seen them IRL, and have never heard of Bluebonnet ice cream either!

  14. Such a pretty card Kelly, lovely floral image and gorgeous colouring. The gingham paper is lovely, Kate x

  15. Great image and love the vibrant blue gingham paper

  17. Very nice, inside and out.

  18. Beautiful card Kelly both inside and out. I love your layout and the way you used more than one layer inside. This is a very striking card. Well done my friend

  19. Wow Kelly, I love the layout! The diagonal strips of yellow against the blue gingham is so great! The inside touches with the burlap are lovely too! Great job!

  20. I love the colors and the layout of your card. The strips are perfect and the colors of the flowers shine!
