Dueling Darling May Challenge

The duel is on and I late but posting on the 15th so technically just a bit late...I was getting ready to post my card when the batteries on my camera decided that they were finished..I had to go get batteries this morning and finally got back to my post. Our lovely hostesses were Paola for the Dazzlers and Judy for the Divas. Judy sent us an amazing kit with tons of things to play with.  Thank you so much Judy, I had so much fun playing. I chose the Sparkling Creations "Ukelele Josh" to use from the kit...Judy also sent along Bild marlarna "mimsa violin" which I also colored up but haven't made a card with yet. She also included a big selection of dsp along with many accessories to match....

Here is my card:

I used a white base and the Imaginice, live loud "garage Band", crate and paper, paper tad for the herringbone dsp. All of the papers were wonderful and it was hard deciding what to choose for this card. I used the sheet music washi tape and the black button and black and white twine to finish off the front.

Here is the inside;


On the inside I used the black embossed sheet music panel and one of the sentiments Judy sent. I also used music not stickers...Thanks again Judy for all the fun.. as an extra we were asked what song and who we would dedicate it to if we could dedicate a special song. This one is a toughie for me. I can think of several but I think one would be "Special Angel" to my granddaughter. She is so special to me and I am so glad I'm close enough to see her often.

Thanks for stopping by, please stop by the rest of the duelers sites. I am sure you won't be disappointed...

Until next time,
Hugs,
Carol

Oh, I was hoping that someone would fussy cut this image! I really think that it looks good the way you cut it and have the DP panel behind it. You colored the image - especially the hat - so well!!!

Carol, this is so, so pretty! I'll join the others in saying that fussy cutting the image really makes a big difference. He just draws the eye and your coloring is wonderful.
