Gettin' Dirty!

Hi, everyone! Happy Monday! Over the weekend I participated in a few Dare to Get Dirty challenges at Splitcoaststampers. Each year the Fan Club members get a chance to take part in special challenges hosted by the Dirty Dozen, past and present. If you are a Fan Club member you can find all of the challenges HERE through July 23. If you're not a Fan Club member, now is a good time to become one! :)

My first card combines challenges from BevMom and rsalamon. It's a clean and simple card with paper pieced birds. I used the Pretty Birds set by CHF, and the paper is Euphoria by BasicGrey. The sentiment is from Clearly Sentimental about Mothers.

I had lots of fun with my second card. I combined challenges from StamperSharon and AmberDawn. I used a lot of layers and texture. Paper is Fly a Kite by October Afternoon. The sentiment frame was done using the Framed Greetings Die and Stamp Set, and I hand-cut the mat from a Cork Sheet. The sentiment itself is from Clearly Sentimental about Emerson. I added some Crochet Ribbon, distressing, and machine stitching, plus a Jumbo Scallop border cut from Veggie Garden Felt.

I hope I can take part in one or two challenges each day -- they are so much fun!

I'll be back tomorrow night with this month's MFT VIP Blog Hop! Please stop back to hop along with us! :)

Have a great day -- thanks so much for visiting!
