Dare to Get Dirty Challenges

EMBRACE THE WHITE SPACE - by rsalamon - Make a CAS card.
JUST FAUX YOU - by justwritedesigns01 - no ribbons, embellishments or DP unless made yourself
COLOUR by JeanneS - use red, yellow, green with any neutrals.

Verve's Bountiful Backgrounds set is my go-to set to create custom DP and the polka dots are my fave. The faux brads were made using a small circle punch and adding Crystal Effects. - also nice and flat for mailing. The flower was colored with Copics and a second layer was added for dimension. I can see I won't get much done this week as these Dare to Get Dirty challenges are so addicting...but then it's too hot to work outside, so why not stay cool in my stamping space?!

A PIECE OFFERING by DeborahLynneS - Use paper piecing in your image as well as in a border or BG.
STRUT UR STUFF by gbedwright - Use anything you already have...something you may be hoarding.

This cupcake image from SU's Crazy for Cupcakes is one of my fave images to piece! I also stitched 12 squares (1 1/2 inch) for the BG and zigzagged them together on my Janome mini machine. I have been hoarding these ghost shapes (the heart and flower are hard to see in the picture), so not only used one, but TWO on one card - lol! It's obviously a birthday card, so the sentiment will go in the inside.

Love the top card - fabulous CAS and great colour combo. Fun mix of DPs on the second. Way to get some of those challenges done!
