Dare To Get Dirty 2011!

Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!  I am SO excited that it's Dare To Get Dirty 2011!  My very first blog post was my announcement that I was invited to join the Dirty Dozen!  I still remember when the famous JulieHRR asked me if I wanted to be a part of the Dirty hubs thought I was having a heart attack because I was SO excited I could not even speak (or breathe to be honest!).  Definitely one of the BEST things that has ever happened to me!
I am SO glad that I had some time to get stampy and participate in a few challenges!  Here's hoping I can fit some more in this weekend...these challenges are SO much fun!

My card today fits into the following challenges (you must be an SCS Fan Club Member to access these!):

For my card, I wanted to ink up the brand new Moka Jane from Taylored Expressions (she was just released yesterday!) as I hadn't had a chance to use her.  Isn't she SUPER cute?  I stamped her onto Choice Buttercream Cardstock and colored her with Copic Markers and "fussy" cut her out.  I popped her up with Foam Tape onto a Kraft panel cut with Circle Nestabilities and I added texture to it with the new Lots of Dots Impression Plate.  This panel was popped up, again with Foam Tape, onto a Kraft panel cut with Scallop Circle Nestabilities.

The patterned paper is Odds and Ends from Cosmo Cricket and I added tons of machine stitching.  The sentiment, "Kick Up Your Heels" is also from Moka Jane and I stampd it onto a panel cut with the It's A Banner Day 2 Die and I also stamped it with the outline from It's A Banner Day 2.  I added some stars cut from both Odds and Ends and Choice Buttercream with the Seeing Stars Die.  The scallop border was cut with the Medium Scallop Border Die

The ribbon is delish and it's from The Ribbon Carousel.  I added a bow created with The Bow Easy, and added a Vintage Red Jenni Bowlin button tied with some twine on top of the bow.  SO fun!

Here are the Taylored Dies I've used on my card:

I hope you are playing along with this years DTGD challenges too!  I have a challenge myself, DTGD11Kharmagirl, and I'd love to see your creation!

If you aren't an SCS Fan Club Member, I must urge you to join right HERE.  SCS is SUCH a wealth of knowledge and'd be supporting the site AND getting TONS of member only inspiration!
