It's June 15th and time for another duel with the Dueling Darlings! Today is also Father's Day here in the USA and so this is a fitting tribute to all father's, especially those who love to garden. This month's hosts are Tami for the Divas and Darlene for the Dazzlers and they chose this theme and sent their teammates card kits full of papers, stamped images and embellishments to create a card built upon the theme "Gardening". I'm a Diva (well, not really!) and received this fantastic kit from Tami full of gorgeous papers, stamped images and lots of embellishiments:
Image: Riley & company, "Garden Riley" stamped in Momento Tuxedo Black ink
Designer Papers: My Little Shoebox/Farmer's Market/Farm Fresh and Sweet Pea; Best Creation/Gone Fishing; KI Memories/Family Time
Embellishments: washi tape by Studio G/Hampton Art; various ribbons, twine, buttons, glitter dots; rhinestone butterfly, paper flowers and more
Here's my card:
I'm thinking my Darling Husband who is the gardener in this family deserves this card on Father's Day for being such a great dad to our two sons! Tami asked us to include a favorite gardening tip in our post. I'm not a gardener so I really don't have a gardening tip to share. I just decide what plants I want in the garden and let my DH do the rest!
Kelly, one of my Diva teammates, is on the design team for Riley and Company and is hosting the challenge this week called "Terrific Textures" so this card is serving "duel" purposes this week...heehee, love that little pun...both for the Dueling Darlings and for the Riley "Terrific Textures" challenge here: http://www.rileyandco.blogspot.com/2014/06/terrific-texture.html
