Birds of a Feather Flock Together

It is the 15th of the month and that means it's time for another round of Dueling Darlings. Kelly and Jeanette came up the idea for this group four years ago next month, so this is a special challenge and the theme is FOUR. Well, really, the theme is Birds of a Feather, but Four is a main component of this month's challenge.

This month's kit was a cornucopia of goodies and Kelly had many creative ways for us to use it all. First, we were to use 4 of one item (and there was a generous amount to choose from). I chose to use 4 flowers in my tree. The second suggestion was for us to use this awesome piece of burlap. I LOVE burlap on cards and thought it made a great backdrop for my tree. And lastly, we were to use the image we received in a creative way. The image of the tree had several components and as you will see in hopping from Darling to Darling, there are many different ways to use this stamp set.

And here is the inside of my card, using one of the sentiments from the kit.

I think I hit all the points of the challenge. While I haven't been a member of the Duel for all 4 years, I feel so blessed to join in the fun and form the friendships that I have through our love of card making. Thank you so much to Kelly for this kit and for inviting me to be a Diva!!

Lots of love to these Girlies!! Be sure and check out what all of them have created for you!
