DDD August 2014 Friends are the family we chose for ourselves

First off I must apologize once again. I am sooooooo late and here it was Melina and my turn to host the challenge. We chose "Friends are the family we chose for ourselves" and I had fun creating the kits. I pulled from my stash for this challenge....thus the purple theme. It is out of my comfort zone for a color combo but what the hey....we all have to try something new once in awhile.

I love the Art Impression stamps and sayings so I chose an image from the Girlfriend line. I also had a few sentiments but for my card chose to keep it blank until I found out who I planned on sending my card to.

This is the front of my card. Not a very good picture but......(hopefully one of these days I'll learn how to take better pictures).

I used stripes of the card stock mounted on elegant eggplant SU card stock and the little pearl embellies. Of course no card is complete without at least a touch of glitter so thus the glitter on the head band and glitter pen on the lips.

Here is the inside of my card:

Again not a great pic... :(....

I am so glad my duelers are my friend family. These gals are wonderful and I love them all.. They are also good sports as well since I'm pretty sure for at least a couple of us this card was really a challenge if only for the color

Please stop by the rest of the duelers and check out their creations. I am sure you will not be disappointed.

Until next time,

Very cute card Carol. I love the front of the card and of course I love the bling!

How wonderful is this card! I love the image- and your coloring is awesome. I also really like the layout- and that you added the DP strips on the inside. You are lucky to have a fun group like this : )

Great idea and use of the DP's! They look really good varied like that. I also like how you colored the green shirt. Looks great.

You sent an awesome kit, thank you. I had fun with it!

That bling sets this card off wonderfully! Love your creation. I'm so glad you duel! :)

Oh sweet Carol, your card is such a wonderful reflection of how I see you - always smiling, happy, a best friend to all! You did a great job with the design, coloring, it's just super fabulous all around - like you!

I finally got my card done (still not posted yet!) and thank you for such a fun kit this month!

Blessings, lots of love! ♥

Hi Carol! Oh, I was so thrilled and excited when I opened the package containing the kit for this duel! You outdid yourself and I especially loved the darling, fun image of those "best friends" and the fun and funny sentiments that went with them. Your card is a delight with the strips of oh so pretty cardstock and the pearl embellishment really set them off. And, of course, the girlfriends are a delight and you are right... stickles add the perfect touch! I'm so thankful to have your friendship on the DDDs!
