Birthday Duel

Hi Friends!
I hope your Thursday is off to a great start!
I'm here with our first Dueling Darlings card of the New Year. This month our hostesses Judy (for the Divas) and Debbie (for the Dazzlers) chose Birthday's as our theme. Their idea stemmed from all things new in the new year and I love it!

Judy sent us an incredible array of papers, stamps and embellishments to chose from--it was hard for me to decide. That was actually what took me longest in creating this card. Once I saw that birthday spinner in the mix, I just had to figure out the best way to work it in! So I designed my whole card around it!

I hope you'll hop around with us today and see what the ladies have created for this January Duel! (names listed on sidebar)

Oh my goodness Kadiebug,....this is awesome. I love your layout and colors and the use of the spinner image is inspiring. I've never used an image like that as I just couldn't wrap my head around how to use it. I guess I should have given you a call as this is perfect. Thanks for the inspiration my sweet friend...great job on this card.

So good to see your blog alive and buzzing again! Always inspiring, you are :) And what a simply charming card you've created here with that spinner that I petted and drooled over! I'm so glad to see it showcased in the Divas side as I was stumped on how to use it ~ and this is brilliant! Love your use of color on the spinner, too ~ just perfect!

Blessings to you and the continued fun with the DDD! ♥
