October DDD 2018 "Kindness"

This month our wonderful hostesses were Jeanette for the Dazzlers and Kelly for the Divas. They chose Kindess as their theme (Kelly's word of the year, but more than that Kindness should be all the time, every day!)Kelly sent along a wonderful kit.

The image is from Unity Stamp Co. "thank you kindly" and the sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps.
The dsp is from The paper studio
The enamel dots are from Echo Park.

There were many, many more wonderful things to play with however I have listed above the items I used on my card.

Here is the front of my card:

I used basic black as the background of my card. (I favor  black as it goes with everything, in my opinion.) I colored the image in copics and I used 3 of the dsp papers. I used a sketch challenge from pinterest and had to adjust it a smidge as my image was a little larger than the piece on the sketch I had to leave out so it would have not really shown up. otherwise the sketch is basically the same. I chose to used the enamel dots in the circles in the corner to give the card a little extra pop.

Here is the inside:

I used the parts of the circle I cut off on the front of the card to make the edging of to the side of the sentiment. 

Thank you for stopping by, please stop by the other duelers blogs and SCS galleries and check them out. I am sure you will not be disappointed. It is amazing what everyone comes up with using the same kits. 

Until next time,

Carol, this card is all kinds of wonderful! Love the technique of using the black card stock to "frame" each strip of the pretty DP's - very eye catching! Your coloring is super, her lavender dress just pops off the card! Great job my friend!
