Dare to Get Dirty '08


I'm gettin' dirty with the Dirty Dozen!! This week is Dirty Dare '08 for SCS Fan Club members. We get to play in challenges by the DD and DD alumni and post them to a special gallery. Not a Fan Club member? Go HERE to see how you can be one!

Yesterday the first two Dare to Get Dirty challenges were posted. Jody Morrow's challenge was to use ribbon as the inspiration for your project, and Laurie Schmidlin's challenge was to use vellum. I combined them to create this card. These ribbons were lying next to each other in my ribbon basket, so I used them as my starting point. They just so happen to be the same colors that are in the Afternoon Tea paper, so it just came together from there! I added the vellum to bring more flowers to the design.

This was fun -- I hope to do more of the challenges this week! Tomorrow I'll have the ATS Wednesday Challenge, and Thursday is my Blogaversary!!! Lots of fun -- I hope you'll stop back! Thanks for the visit today! :)

Stamps: Coffee with Friends (Flourishes) Ink: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky (SU!) Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White (SU!)
