...More Dirty Dares

I finally got a chance to snap off some pictures of the two cards I made yesterday. I used the same color scheme on both of them: Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum, and Pumpkin Pie.
This card is my submission for Julia Stainton's Stitching Dirty Dare at SCS DTGD08Julia). I hand-stitched three edges of the focal panel with Plum Embroidery Thread. Here are the supplies for this yummy card:
Stamps: Big Bold Birthday
Paper: Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum, Whisper White
Ink: Jet Black Staz-On, Certainly Celery, Craft Inks (Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie)
Accessories: Crystal Stickles, Embroidery Thread, Needle, Ribbon, Scissors, Stamp-a-ma-jig, Image Sheet

This one is my submission for Rose Ann's Flap Card Dirty Dare at SCS (DTGD08Rose Ann). The step-by-step instructions for this flap card can be seen HERE. Instead of using the magnetic closures, I used a small Velcro dot on the flap and front panel to secure card. The supplies are as follows:

Stamps: So Many Scallops

Papers: Certainly Celery, Perfect Plum, Whisper White, Making Memories 6X6 Designer Paper

Ink: Pumpkin Pie

Accessories: Punches (1-1/4" Circle Punch, 1-3/8" Circle Punch, Scallop Circle Punch), Paper Piercer, White Signo Gel Pen, Small Velcro Dot

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to visit me. I have some school shopping to do for the boys today, so I will be running around like a chicken with my head cut off for the next few hours! ACK! I hope to see you back here tomorrow with my last Dirty Dare, and maybe a couple of SCS weekly challenge cards {fingers crossed}. Until then...
