Good Morning! Dare to Get Dirty 2009 is officially here! There will be three days (July 23-25) of fun packed challenges! You can read all about it HERE (you need to be a Fan Club Member to participate).
Kicking off the first day of challenges, Jen del Muro (aka genie1314) issued a challenge using one of the Fan Club Gallery's previous themes (the first one, actually!!) - to create a project using tags. I was so honored that she asked me to make a sample card for her challenge! Here's what I came up with...
I chose to create a card with a tag as the focal point using my new For All You Do set (from Stampin' Up!). I'm not quite sure what to call the style of this card (modern shabby chic?), but I really enjoyed making it! I used some of my favorite embellishments and techniques...tone on tone layering, antiquing, distressing, sewing, and of course adding buttons! :-)
You can check out Jen's challenge HERE! I hope you get some time to participate...it is going to be a BLAST!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day! ~Laurie
