*July's Dueling Darlings : Birds Of a Feather *

 Hello Everyone...
well, I am finally posting my Dueling card for LAST month!!
 (will hopefully also post this month's card later on today....)

This fun kit was sent to us Darlings by Jeanette -aka Forest Ranger in SCS-
( Kelly was the hostess for the Divas )
This is Jeanette's suggested challenge, in her own words  :

Through the years, through thick and thin, we've blessed each other in many ways and all these years later, we're still together – like a flock!

And here’s the challenge – Since we are celebrating 4 years together, you must have 4 of SOMETHING on your card - 4 flowers, 4 brads, 4 gems, 4 different designer papers, etc! Those 4 things must be the same ELEMENT (in other words, 4 different gems are okay but not 1 paper, 1 ribbon, 1 brad, 1 button = 4)."

This above is the finished inside of my card... and below a close up of the fun image...
Gotta love Penny Black feathered chicks....;o)
All of what you see in the card was part of the great kit received, I only added the card base!
Was able to use 4 flowers and the 4 blue brads that Jeanette sent in the kit...but kept the background
to a minimum so not to overpower this fun and funky image....♥

Kit's contents:
Image – Penny Black Chicky Work Out stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black
(notice there are 4 chicks in the image.)
Sentiment – Great Impressions stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black
Designer Papers (4 of them) – from Paper Studio
  • Happy All Over – Floral
  • Poteeka Stripe
  • Small Polka Dot – Pink/Cream
  • Texture Yellow
  • Accessories :
  • Paper Studio – Gemstones (there are 4 of these)
  • Ribbon Boutique – Ruffled Ribbon
  • Sew-Ology – a piece of an actual tape measure
  • Spare Parts - Brads
  • Spare Parts – Clear Starburst Brad
  • Spare Parts – Flowers (two kinds; 4+ of these)

Hopefully Jeanette and all the Darlings like the card's end results! ♥

Here are a couple more birds' images, colored with Copics by my youngest GS while we were camping...he did such a great job! I should have made my card with his colored image!♥ 
*Also, the second immie was one I received from the Unidentify's swap...

Have a  most wonderful day you all! *TGIF!! ♥

Your card is AMAZING - inside and out! Love the way you colored the image and the overall design is fabulous, too!

Kudos to Noah, too. ;)

Noah, did a great job coloring!

Your layout is great on the card. I really like how the measuring tape is placed under the image. Fun!!!

What a fun card Paola, and beautifully made too. Looks as though Noah is taking after his grandmother in the crafting department.

I love how the pop of blue in the image coordinates with the papers you used! This is so bright and cheery!
Noah did an absolutely fab job of coloring. I will be sending all my images to him from now on. Wow!
