Dare to Get Dirty Fun!

Have you been playing the Dare To Get Dirty Challenges at Splitcoast? If not what are you waiting for?

Here is a card I made for Day 2…

I used some packaging material from one of my Sizzix dies to make this panel. I cut it to size and embossed with Sizzix 659726 Sweet Dots & Florals and my Big Shot (used the same layering sandwich you would for cardstock).

I sponged some ink onto vellum and then heat set to dry the ink.  I die cut the butterfly with Sizzix 659707 Winged Butterfly.

I embossed my butterfly the same embossing folder  (Sizzix 659726 Sweet Dots & Florals).

I used 659426 Bow-Tied to die cut my bow from pink felt.

I assembled my card and added a strip of felt along the side and attached my bow. I added some rhinestones to the butterfly and my bow to finish my card.
