Dare to Get Dirty!

If you are a paid member on SCS, you can take part in this year's Dare to Get Dirty challenges. They are so much fun, plus members of the Dirty Dozen comment on your cards! Last year both Jenn Balcer and JulieHRR commented on the same card, and it was so exciting!
Anyway, Laurie (lauraly on SCS) is a former Dirty Girl, and her challenge on Monday was to use vellum. Well, I had already made these vellum flowers; how great is that? (Come back on Friday for another card using vellum and details on how I made the flowers.) I wanted to use markers on the flowers, and I only have the Bold Brights so that determined the color combo. I don't use these colors anymore, so this was definitely outside my comfort zone! I used the big piece of vellum to soften the Yoyo Yellow cardbase. I thought the Basic Gray would help tone it all down a little.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment, Bud Basics, Sanded; Paper: vellum cardstock, shimmery white, basic gray, orchid opulence, yoyo yellow; Ink: VersaMark, Basic Gray, Orchid Opulence, Yoyo Yellow, Bold Bright markers; Accessories: ticket corner punch, white EP, Basic Gray taffeta ribbon, Ice Circles rhinestone brads
Happy stamping!
