It is Dare To Get Dirty time again over at SCS, I had so much fun participating in this last year that I have been looking forward to this years event. Past & present members of the Dirty Dozen will be hosting challenges over the next week ... 2 challenges per day on week days and 4 challenges on Saturday & Sunday.
For my card today I combined the first two challenges ... one of the challenges was to use vellum on our card. I added the vellum as a layer over my main image and then stamped my sentiment over the top of it ... this gives the image a nice subtle look! The second challenge was to use ribbon .... I love using the wide ribbon on my cards so I selected this wide ribbon from Papertrey Ink I got earlier in the year.
My card also works for this weeks OCC challenge over on Our Creative Corner's blog which was to use embossing on our card. I used my swiss dots cuttlebug embossing folder to create the embossing on the base of my card.
