Dare to Get Dirty Week!

"It's Dare to Get Dirty Week at Splitcoaststampers! If you're a Fan Club Member this is your chance to play along with Dirty Girls, past and present, in a ton of fun challenges. ) If you're not a Fan Club Member, this is the perfect time to become one! You can get all the info here.) We'd love to have you play with us this week! There are 33 challenges to choose from - play one or play them all. if you do play them all (and you can combine challenges on your cards so it's not as many as it sounds like!), you can enter for the Challenge Queen Prize pack, which consists of 12, count em 12 prizes that have been donated, I don't know what all of them are yet but one is my "A Beautiful Life" stamp set! All prizes go to the winner, go for it!

The card I'm sharing today is for a challenge hosted by ME and you can see the details here. (It almost meets the requirements for 6 ther challenges, so you can combine them! :) You WON'T be able to combine 33 into one project thugh, several are sketches!) This shadowbox uses "A Beautiful Life" and Gina's butterfly from "Hope is Faith". Cardstock is Pure Luxury White on the front, Grass Green on the back and lined with Lemon Drop. Front and back layers are 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 3/4" and 1 1/2" on both ends of the green and white, fold on the scores, and adhere the end flaps together with Scor-Tape. When pressed flat, it fits into a large envelope. Butterfly and bee are colored with Copics and covered with Crystal Stickles. I also embellished it with adhesive pearls and some flourish punches.
It's a good time to get dirty! :)
I hope you play!
