DTGD09 Sketchy Textured Wings...

It's another Dare to Get Dirty card!!! If you're a Fan Club Member you can join in all the fun by checking out the forum HERE!! I've combined three challenges in this card, Deb's, Cindy's and Bonnie's!! It would also qualify for Becca's again too!

I started with a base of Very Vanilla and layered with some Mulberry Bazzill. The four squares are the new Basic Grey Lemonade DSP matted with Very Vanilla and zig zag stitched around each square. The main panel is the largest butterfly from Inkadinkado's Gem Stone Insects that has been stamped in Rose Red ink on VV card and popped up with foam tape. Underneath that is some more VV that's been embossed with the Floral Screen embossing folder, matted with some Teal Bazzill and more VV. I've cut them using the small, large and large scalloped circle nestabilities. I finished off by adding the birthday sentiment from 'Elegant Cheer' (SU) in Chocolate Chip ink and some Aquamarine Kaisercraft rhinestones that my wonderful friend Michelle (aka sf9erfan) sent me!!! :) Thanks so much Michelle (it's also thanks to you that I couldn't resist this Lemonade paper)!!!

Yumm-o!!! This is gorgeous!!!!!!!!!

The BG Lemonade looks different and totally fab with the SU & Bazzill. I love the stitching. I sew (I had to say it!) want to do this on my cards, but I do not own a sewing machine.

The floral screen e.f. adds to the elegance of your card(I have this folder, but it is still a virgin).


Can you tell I LOVE this card?!
