June Duel~~~♥

  Hello Friendly Bloggers,
Are you ready? It's DUEL TIME! ♥

This months's lovely hostess are : Darlene ,for us Dazzlers ,and Terri for the Divas...
The theme they both challenged us this month is : GARDENING

      Us Dazzlers received a wonderful kit full of great choices and a super image. 
Image: Gardening Shelf by Stamps Happen stamped w/ Marvy Matchables Black Ink 
(by Uchida on Conqueror Diamond White Cardstock)
Designer Paper; K & Company -Lemon Citron Pack-
Embellishments: Paper Studio Gemstones, Ribbon, Ribbon Boutique Silk Plaid Ribbon, K & Company Dimensional Flower, Recollections Blue Flowers, CraftWorkCards Candi Dots, 
Creative Impressions Dragonfly Brad, Spare Parts Glitter Lady Bug and Garden Tool Brads
For my card I added: card stock, some diff. sized pearls, nesties and dimentionals.
Image was colored using Copics and SU markers.

 Above: The finished inside of  the card and below a close up of the completed image. 
The gardening gloves and the pink seed packet were fussy cut ,then propped with dimentionals 
on top of the nesties. A couple of garden related sentiments were used both in and out of the card.

As an extra step, Darlene asks us to add some gardening tips : well, I used to save all egg shells (both fresh or boiled), plus the coffee grounds and add them to the makes for good compost. Also if/when you have leftover milk to discard use it for the geraniums...for as long as I can remember I was told it's really good for those kind of plants...♥
Happy Gardening Everyone and God's  Bless!!

Oh Sweet P fantastic as usual! Love the layout with the two triangles of DP connected at the center with the strip of gems. Really love the shape of the die cut used to frame the image. The added sentiments inside and out are just perfect.

The die cut you used features the image so well. The fussy cut items look really good....going to have to remember that one!

I also love that you actually have gardening tips....we seem to be a creative card group, but not gardeners for sure!!! LOL

Wow wow WOW!! :) You really rocked this duel. Absolutely love the brilliant colors and all the extra touches. Popping up the gloves and seed packets is super! Love the little dragonfly too. Super super lovely card!!

Your gardening tips are great! I always used milk for my pumpkins as a kid, and they were HUGE!
