It's Time to Get Dirty

Happy Monday stampers!! On Saturday, Splitcoast Stampers started this years "Dare To Get Dirty" challenges, and it is NOTHING but a good time!! Need more details, better head on over to SCS to get started!!

Here is my card for one of today's AWESOME challenges, being hosted by Amber Hight(amberdawn)....not going to tell you what, when, where or why the challenge is/am/ are, but I will tell you where to look!! Fan club members can only see this forum, so if you aren't one, become one!! SCS is one of the GREATEST stamping sites in the WORLD, and the small fee they charge to be a member is well worth it!
For my card, I started by stamping the SUPER CUTE Kick Some Grass image from The Cat's Pajamas on X-Press It Blending card, and then colored it with my Copics. My paper is from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party pack. I paired it with MFT cardstock in Sour Apple, Wild Cherry, and Pink Lemonade. I also used some Lime, Blossom,and Maraschino twine from MFT. My green ribbon is from Michael's, brads as well, and my spiral clip is from Creative Express.
Well, that is it for me for now!! Can't wait to see you play along....and rumor has it, I might have a little challenge of my own in a few days. Bet you can't guess what it will be!!!

For my card tonight, I started by cutting out my tag with GP White cardstock. I then cut out some paper from the My Mind's Eye Gertie pack. I added the DP to the tag, some ruffled ribbon, and some buttons from both PTI and MFT. I used linen thread in the buttons. For my saying, I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I used Walnut Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel for the tag tie. For my border on the base of the card, I used the Faux Crochet Border Die-namics, and some more yummy paper. The brads I used are from Michael's. The cardstock colors I used on this are Hot Fudge, Lemon Drop, and Tempting Turquoise(SU).

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies, and another sentiment from the Tag You're It set. I was THRILLED to get to use this set on a card, it just shows how versatile it can be!

Well, that is it for me for today! Be sure to head to Kim's for a list of designers participating in today's teasers. Thanks for stopping by!
