Three for the Dirty Dare

Saturday started a full week of Dare to Get Dirty challenges over at Split Coast -  you have to be a member of the Fan Club to see and participate in the challenges so I can't tell you why I made the following cards (!) but I can tell you how I made them!  There will be at least 5 challenges a day all week - so I don't think I'll be doing them all - but here are 3 of the 5 that I've done so far.

For this pretty little 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" Thank You card I used stamps from Waltzingmouse -  the flower, leaves and sentiment are from Camellia and the gingham stamp is from Gingham and Co.  The bloom is popped up on foam dots and I added 2 dew drops

My next card is, oddly enough, a Halloween Card!   I was initially going to make a lovely summer flower - but when I decided to use the Tattered flower die by Tim Holtz I felt I had to make it more grunge - and then chose some cool Halloween papers for the flower and the background.  So here it is!  The sentiment is from the Hocus Pocus set by Waltzingmouse.
And for my last card today -  I have a 5" x 5" wedding card.  I embossed the panel with a Sizzix Clock Works embossing folder and layered a glitter gold die cut clock face using the Tim Holtz Alterations weathered clock die.  The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Hope to see you Monday night at the Waltzingmouse Blog for the Pajama Party event!
