January's Dirty Challenge

Hi everyone! Every month there's a challenge for the Dirty Dozen and Dirty Dozen Alumni. This month's challenge theme, hosted by the lovely Jodi Collins, is Can you Feel the Love.

The details of the challenge...

Challenge Focus: A Valentine's Day/Love-y Dove-y card
Required Element: Texture!! Anything you can *feel* (ie: Fun Flock, Crystal Effects, Embossing/Debossing, velvet ribbon, etc.)
Restricted Element: No RED!! ....Yikes, Jodi! Pink is ok, but no red...again, YIKES Jodi! You don't even want to know HOW MANY times I reached for red, LOL!



For the valentine/love-y theme, I used my Sarah Kay Fanny's Cuddle image. I used shades of pink and brown from my Bittersweet DP...whew, I stayed away from red. For the texture requirement, I dry embossed the large brown base panel with my Swiss Dots folder and heat embossed the sentiment. I also dry embossed the inside of the card. The main image and punched sentiment are both up on Dimensionals.

Fanny's Cuddle, the With Love sentiment, Curved Mega Rectangle Nestabilities, Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, and the Neenah 80 lb White CS are all available at Stamper's Dream.

The layout of the card is Taylor's TECC51 Sketch.
