Time for DTGD!!

Hello and Happy Monday!
It's time for the Dare to Get Dirty challenges at Splitcoaststampers!  This is a week of about 40 special challenges for Fan Club members.  I got a late and slow start, due to a bunch of commitments, including being out of town most of today.  I have been updating my gallery, and now my blog.  I posted these cards to SCS yesterday, thinking I would stamp more today.  Nope. Didn't happen! Any goes!

I am a week late on this Paper Players challenge...but I WILL get them all done this year!  I am DETERMINED!  I like this clean sketch.  I combined it with the current ColourQ challenge, plus Vicki's DTGD challenge.  I can't link that one, because it is exlusive to Fan Club members...but you should join!

The card base is rich razzlberry.  On whisper white, I used SU's "Mixed Bunch" to create my own pattern paper.  I dry embossed a strip of saffron with the chevron folder.  The sentiment is from "Whmsical Words," on a scallop circle.  Strips of satin and taffeta ribbon were used, along with a punched heart.

Next, I have a card that was for a special challenge, with a chance to win a Fan Club membership or renewal.  We were challenged to use something in our stash that we have had but never used.  I purchased a set of book mark stamps from Our Daily Bread Designs way back in January, but none of them had been used yet!  I decided this stamp would work well with a past ColourQ challenge.  (Completing those this year is not a specific goal,  but I really like this palette!)  It is also for Lydia's DTGD challenge.  The turquoise card base is large: 5x7.  I had pieces of poppy and daffodil pattern paper in my dp scraps...perfect!  I used blender pens to color the image, then mounted it on black to make it pop.  Enamel dots finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by!  There is NO way I will complete all of the DTGD challenges, with all of the stuff I need to do this week.  But I hope to get 10-12 completed.  Stay tuned!
