Do You Dare To Get Dirty?

Hi everyone!! Happy Sunday!!

Did you know that the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges have begun over at Splitcoaststampers? I LOVE DTGD!! There are TONS of challenges and you can do as many (or as few) as you would like!! Tons of Dirty Dozen Designers and Dirty Dozen Alumni (like me!) have participated and we hope you will too!

I was SO excited to create a sample for my sweet friend Kim's AWESOME sketch challenge from yesterday! Is she not a TOTAL rock star or what???

I had WAY to much fun with this sketch!! I started with some super fun papers (and my current obsession, if you didn't notice, LOL!) DeLovely by Cosmo Cricket. All of the colors on my card were pulled from the papers.

I stamped this sweet little gal from Birthday Princess from My Favorite Things in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar Classic White and colored her with Copic Markers. I used the striped pattern from DeLovely to paper piece her dress. Her Birthday crown got a dusting of Martha Stewart Glitter for a bit of sparkle.

I cut her out and embossed the panel with Circle Nestabilities which I layered over Scallop Circle Nestabilities cut from Classic Magenta cardstock. The sentiment, "Happy Birthday" is also from Birthday Princess, and I created little flag for it that I tucked under my flower and stitched to my card.

I LOVE the felt flower I created!!! LOVE it! LOL! I started with some Sun Felt from the Outdoor Essential Felt Collection from My Favorite Things and cut it with the Die-Namics Rolled Flower Die, also from MFT. These are SO simple to make! I rolled it up and popped a button in the center! I used some of the Sour Apple Felt, also from the Outdoor Essential Felt Collection for the leaves under my flower, which I just hand cut.

I used the same Sour Apple Felt along with the Die-Namics Jumbo Scallop Die to create my scalloped panels. All of the layers, including my scalloped panels, were sewn on my sewing machine.

I hope you all play along with the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges!! If you are not a member of the Fan Club, what are you waiting for? You can join right HERE!
