Gingham and Flowers


Hi everyone.  This week is the "Dare to Get Dirty" Yearly Challenges where past and present members of the Dirty Dozen, set up a series of challenges - six per day for a whole week.  So much fun ... and there's prizes as well from SCS's Sponsors!!  FYI, you have to be a Fan Club member of SCS to participate.  I joined in the fun last year and managed to finish several cards (but not all).  It started yesterday, so I'm already behind :) ... but I managed to cover off four challenges (DTGD13Twinshappy; DTGD13kittie747A; DTGD13KarenGiron; DTGD13TammieE) with this one card - whew!!  Hope you like.

I used the gingham wheel stamp from SU! to stamp onto my flower box.  Then I layered dies that I had sponged and shaped for added dimension.  A few strokes with my white gel pen added some interest to the pink daisies.

Here's a close-up:




Stamps:  Gingham Wheel, A Word for You (SU!)
Paper:  White, Regal Rose, Old Olive (SU!)
Ink:  Not Quite Navy, Regal Rose, Old Olive, More Mustard (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Grand Flower Box die (Poppy Stamps), Fresh Daisies die (Simon Says), Little Leaves die (Sizzix), 8 petal Flower & Branch die (C.C. Designs), sponges, white gel pen, stylus and mat, glue, glue dots, adhesives and dimensionals

This is so pretty Loll and I love that flower die (so much that last time you used it I had to scurry off to SSS to buy it!). Love the gingham window box and the matching piece of gingham on the inside of the card.

I love these layered flowers and I can see that gingham wheel is going to have to make it into my next order. Good going on getting 4 challenges in for one card!
