Well, I’m starting to feel the 5:00 rise time this morning and want to get one more card posted until I crash and burn for the afternoon — I may or may not make it back to the studio.

I’m still working on doing the challenges for Dare to Get Dirty, and this card is for Candy’s (cwilliams) challenge today. When I first thought of this, I was thinking simple and how I could incorporate acetate into the design. I didn’t have any acetate, so I used the front sheet of a laminating folder. I cut a sheet of cardstock just slightly smaller than my card, scored 2 lines for form a channel, and stamped the dragonfly from Au Naturale by Lizzie Anne Designs in Soft Sky. The acetate sheet was cut the same size as the panel, but I added 1/2″ on the top, which I scored and overlapped behind the background panel forming a hinged layer. Once I had the two panels together, I overstamped the dragonfly images on the acetate layer with The Essential Glue Pad and used Diamond Gold Ultra-Fine Glitter on the glue. To hold this outer panel down, I tied the ribbon around the top and added some brads on the bottom. The top layers were then added to the card.

Good afternoon everyone! It’s Friday and day three of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges celebrating the Three Year Anniversary of the Splitcoast Fan Club. I hope you have been enjoying the challenges so far, that you are looking forward to those today and are getting ready for all those coming your way this weekend. I have one tomorrow and then another on Sunday. Hope you join me both of those days for some rockin’ fun!

This is one of my challenge cards for today. I made this one for Julia’s challenge! All the panels of the designer paper were sponged in distress ink and sewn together onto a black background panel. The image panel has French Script stamped lightly in the background. The motif, for lack of a better name, and the sentiment (which is crooked – and too late to change it) is rock and rolled and then stamped over the French Script.
