DTGD2010 - Orange Hibiscus

Hi there! Here's another Dare to Get Dirty card to share with you. This one is for Joan's challenge. Back when I was a dirty girl, one of the monthly themes was "colors of the rainbow" and I was lucky enough to team up with her to make all the orange cards for that month.....and she's been my "orange buddy" ever since. Love ya, Joan! I had so much fun with this!



The card also combines craftycaro and rsalamon's challenges. If you're a Fan Club Member on SCS, head on over to the DTGD Challenge Forum and check out the details of all the challenges. I think you have until August 1st to complete all the challenges and then you'll be entered to win a prize!

I'd been oooohing and aaaahing over these Verve hibiscus stamps for so long and wanted them so much.....and my good friend Dawn bought them for me for my birthday.....sooo incredibly sweet of her! The large white panel with the scored lines is up on foam tape, so is the oval and one of the hibiscus (the one in the middle). I added some orange peel stickles to the centers of all three hibiscus and added some orange mini flower rhinestones under the sentiment. Here's a close-up:



Have an awesome day!
