January DDD Challenge 2017

Well here I am a day late. What a way to start out the new year. (Not Good.) We are starting off the year with Terry (Dazzlers) and Tami (Divas) sending out kits for us to play with. The ironic part of all of this is Tami sent out her bountiful  kit early and I have had my card done now for quite awhile. The part that tripped me was forgetting the 15th was on a Sunday and I didn't have my card available to post yesterday, so I must apologize to all.

Tami sent us an amazing Riley kit with Imaginisce DSP (..all of the pieces were beautiful), a bunch of misc vendor embellishments and the Riley Heart Balloon Image.

I colored up my image right away with copics and used crystal effects to make the balloon shiny. I then found a latch card tutorial and began work. Here is the front of my card.

And here is the inside:

Typically I try to use as many of the DSP papers that I can, however, with this layout I didn't want to over do ..

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card. Please stop by the other duelers and check out how they used their kits. I am sure you will not be disappointed. (These are an amazing group of creative gals).

Until next time,

Carol, your card is beautiful! I love the way you did the hearts... inside and on the front too!

Love it Carol. I'll have to look up the Latch Card to see how you did this. Riley's shiny balloon is great. Hope you're getting better!

Terry Ladwig said...

Cute card Carol! Love the balloon on the front and how you laid out both the inside and outside :-)

Barb said...

WOW--what a fun card. I love how you used so many of the embellishments!

A great start to 2017!

Oh so much fun this card is!!! You were able to use so many of the embellies - great job! I like the layering of the image and that layout of the interior of the card. xoxo

Carol! I thought I had stopped in already - oh me oh my! I'm such a terrible friend, forgive me! I am glad I thought to check below to make sure I commented - surprise to me I had not. Now THIS is the most adorable card! You sure got al ot on there from the kit - and of course, Riley is colored to perfection! YAY for Divas!
Blessed to know you, sistah Carol :)
