Dueling Darlings Times 4!!!!

I'm doing multiple posts today for the Dueling Darling monthly card duels.  I've been late posting my DDD cards but never this late!  So I'm making up for March, April, May and June by posting my cards for these four challenges at one time.  So here goes:


Laura Jean for team Diva and Darlene for team Dazzlers chose the theme "Would You Lie to Ride in My Beautiful Balloon" for the DDD March duel.  LJ, sent this super fun kit with Images (some die-cut) from "Up, Up and Away" collection by My Favorite Things, great patterned paper from the "Life is Beautiful" collection by Fancy Pants, ribbon from Stampin' Up and a variety of other embellishments.  Here is my card:


For the month of April our team leaders are Kelly for the Divas and Jeanette for the Dazzlers.  They've chosen the theme "You Are My Sunshine", so uplifting for rainy April days if you're not living in the Southwest USA!  Her kit came with the darling stamped image Sunshine little pixie, bright and sunny patterned papers and cheerful, sparkly ribbons and gems for embellishments.
Here's my creation:


This month it was my turn for team Diva and my partner Debbie for team Dazzler to create and card kit for our team members.  We chose the theme "April Showers Bring May Flowers".  I stamped several images for my team to choose from:  "daisybella" by StampingBella and "Girl with Butterfly" by Sarah Kay and a several stamped sentiments.  Included in the kit were a variety of patterned papers from several companies, ribbons, twine, buttons and lots of paper flowers.  Here's a picture of what was in the kit:

And here is my card for May:


Diva Barb and Dazzler Tracie came up with the theme "Roses" for the month of June.  How appropriate as Rose is the traditional flower for June.  Barb sent us Divas an absolutely fabulous  kit with two different stamped rose images to choose from: "J Rose" by Embossing Arts and "Delicate Rose Stems" by Hero Arts.  Also in the kit was this delicious Designer Series paper "Sweet Sorbet" by Stampin'...Love, love, love those yummy colors!  Also in the kit were a plethora of embellishments:  brads, buttons, ribbons, twine, pearls,  and white paper flowers.

Here is my card:

I hope you take time to visit the cards posted by my Dueling Darling friends.  You can find them here:
