More Dirty Dare Fun!

Happy Friday, everyone! Another weekend is on the way! I have a couple more Dirty Dare '08 cards to share with you. Doing these challenges is so much fun! If you aren't a Fan Club member you won't be able to see the challenge threads, but you can still view all the DTGD projects at the SCS gallery HERE.

This first card is a combination of Holly's (aka Toy) Sketch Challenge and Sharon's (aka notimetostamp) Stamp Simply challenge. I pierced the scallops, rounded corners, and added Red Stickles to the image. I also masked off the ends of the sentiment before stamping, because it was too long to fit in the space otherwise.

This second card was for Jenn's (aka JBalcer) Inspiration Challenge. She showed a photo of an incredible cake, and it was covered in a pattern exactly like the one in the paper I used! There was a gorgeous green bow on it, too -- so I was determined to get a green bow on this card! :) I paper pieced the cake with the dp. I added stickles to the heart and clear Glaze pen to the cake plate. The smaller panels were embossed with my Cuttlebug. The layout is from this week's Sketch Challenge at SCS.

**I want to remind you to look at yesterday's post below for my Blogaversary Giveaway! The winner will be randomly selected Monday morning. Thanks to all of you who have commented so far -- you all are too sweet!**

I'll be back with more DTGD projects this weekend, so I hope you'll stop back! Thanks so much for visiting today! :)
