Dare To Get Dirty



Hi everyone! The lovely Cindy Lawrence is hosting today's Dare To Get Dirty Sketch Challenge and I'm honored to be one of her sample makers! Thanks so much, Cindy!

*Note: you have to be an SCS Fan Club Member to view the challenges*

Some details about my card...the white circle with the main image is up on foam tape and so are both punched butterflies. Taylor's Tiny Twinkles are glued down to the main image with Diamond Glaze. The main image and circle sentiment behind it were stamped in black craft ink and heat embossed with clear EP. The flowers and "A Laugh is a Smile that Bursts" sentiment from the JustRite Friendship set is stamped on Vintage Silver Lustre CS, the black butterflies are punched from Onyx Mica/Metallic CS, and the pierced white layer behind the small butterfly trio is Retro Silver Lustre CS.

Here's a close-up:

Just lovely! I love the black butterflies, the bling, the sketch, and the sentiments. Great layout too. I've been so busy I haven't even looked at the July Dirty Girls Gallery, much less do the challenges. I need more hours in a day! LOL!

Please, the name of the Ornare piercing template!! Where did you get it? I live in Billings, MT and cannot get much in the way of tools here. Thanks.

I wish I had more time to play in these DARING challenges! Can't wait for school to be back 'in' so I find a small tad more time for ME and to let my creativity to flow!
