Day Five Continued!!

Here is my card for the other two challenges posted in this weeks Dare to Get Dirty festivities. The main image was stamped in River Rock and Black Stazon....for some reason when I make cards like this, that is the color combo that I lean towards, it is so elegant. The layers were cut out with my rectangle Nestabilities. I added some black gingham and River Rock stitched ribbon to it and popped it up. The DP is from the SU Ginger Blossom DSP and it was HAND stitched onto the white layer underneath it. Yes, I know I am nuts. This card is pretty simple, so I won't bore you with the details!!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Day Five-more challenges

So, here we are in day five of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges and quite honestly, I am getting kind of brain is in overload...but I am having so much fun!!! Today, I combined Taylor's Cupcake challenge and the limited supplies challenge together for my first card. I used my My Favorite Things Cupcake set and paper pieced the tops and bottoms with some yummy Basic Grey cupcake paper. I then cut out the image and black layer with my Cuttlebug and Circle Nestabilities. Using my nifty piercing template that Jody sent me, I pierced a circle around the main image. The holes in the scallops were made using my handheld 1/8th punch. The background is Whisper White and some more Cupcake paper connected with some wide Red Grosgrain from SU. I tied the bow separate and attached it with a glue dot. The sentiment is from the MFT You Take the Cake set. I am off to work on the other two challenge...which I have a feeling I am going to combine...if my brain can ever figure out what to do...LOL!! Thanks for stopping by again and have a great day!!
