DTGD Just for You!

Hello Everyone!!  Today's card is another one I made for the Dare to get Dirty challenges over at SCS.  I've combined two challenges for this one - Julies' and Ryann's - both of which totally freaked me out I have to say!  To explain why this looks very different to the sorts of things I normally do - I had to make it Clean and Simple, minimal layers (What!!!), No patterned paper (What!!!!), NO RIBBON (WHAT!!!!) and on and on it went.....honestly very scary!!!  :)  So with the restrictions, this is what I ended up with.  I made the flower using the Dahlia Nestabilities, the leaves with the SU Little Leaves Sizzlet, a bit of Faux stitching (which to be brutally honest is straighter than my sewing anyway), a Label 10 panel embossed with the Jamara EF.  The sentiment is from JustRite's new All Occasions Nested Sentiments and Verse which I cut into a notched tag.

Stamps - All Occasions Nested Sentiments and Verse (JustRite)
Paper - White, Red and Green Bazzill
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Label 10 Nesties, Dahlia Nesties, Little Leaves Sizzlet, Jamara EF, Paper Piercer, Mat Pack, Scissors.

That's all for today, thanks for visiting!!!
