DTGDblondie090277 Sketch

Hi ladies! I'm so excited to be bringing you this card today for the official start of the Dare To Get Dirty 2010 Challenges! If you have never heard of this before then let me give you a little run down. The DTGD Challenges are an annual event put on by the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen and Alumni Team as a thank you to all of the Fan Club members. This year it's an entire week of challenges with roughly 5 challenges per day. You will have until August 1st to upload these to enter for some prizes. See this thread for more details.

This particular card was made up for the challenge that I'm hosting (DTGD10blondie090277) and I had some fantastic sample makers to help me out! Be sure to check out my challenge if you are a fan club member. If not...what are you waiting for ;D

I pulled out one of my older sets called Subs, Sails and Tugs to create this whimsical ocean themed card. I have been drawn to bold colours lately and this is no exception! I broke out my new October Afternoon Fly a Kite papers and dragged out my scrap bin for this fun card. The ship has been water coloured and then popped up in a paper "port hole" frame. I studded this with mini brads from Clear Dollar Stamps and added a coordinating shell button.

I had so much fun making this card! I will be back in a few days to show you a sample that I make for another challenge that will be coming up. Until then, be sure to pop by and partake in some of the fun that will be happening all this week over at SCS :D
