Dare to be a Dirty Girl Challenge card

Hopefully, you're not sick to death of me talking about Splitcoaststampers! (If you are, don't read any further.) Splitcoaststampers is an awesome forum for stampers and scrapbookers. Tracy and Daven Nolta, who run the site, started it long ago for the demonstrators in Tracy's downline, and it has grown into the most popular stamping site around. Membership at SCS is free, believe it or not! To support the site, I am a paid member. As a bonus for paid members, an amazingly talented group called the Dirty Dozen makes projects posted once a month, and you only have access to that gallery if you are a paid member. This is the 3rd anniversary of the Dirty Dozen, so they are having a week of special challenges, 4 each weekday and 8 on Saturday and Sunday. I made this card combining 2 challenges into 1. The first challenge was the sketch or layout of the card. The other challenge was to use tons of pink. While the whole card isn't pink, I did get pink on every layer. The sketch was tough for me as I don't usually use that many layers. It started out differently, but I think it turned out OK. It's much busier than what I usually do, but I am Daring to be a Dirty Girl!

Sorry about the picture quality. I am using Daniel's camera, and I'm having trouble getting used to the lighting/flash differences as compared to my other camera.

Coming tomorrow: a project made specifically with my mother-in-law in mind, and it's not a card!

Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Bodacious Bouquet, Polka Dots & Paisley, Polka Dots & Petals; Paper: Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Petals & Paisley DSP; Ink: Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Taken with Teal, Pretty in Pink; Accessories: Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals

Nice card! Glad to see you're getting over your stamper's block! It really is a lot of pink, though, even if it didn't feel like it to you. It would be a perfect "thinking of you" card to a girlfriend. Pauline

Love the card because I am more of a pink person than you.
