Thanks for Being There, VLV and MORE!

It is the annual Splitcoaststampers Dare to Get Dirty Challenges with fabulous prizes!     The list of all the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges going are going on HERE!  If you are not yet a fan club member of SCS we can get you going here!  This card is for my DTGD11gbedwright challenge !  Check out the link to find out about the challenge!  

VLV Week 1 August Sketch! Great sketch, Amber! For my card I am using Verve's New Mercies and Words Cannot Express stamp sets.  I stamped the large leafy image onto the black cardstock with versamark and clear embossed for a shiny patterned background.  I added some text, torn oval beaded frames, and black embossed the focal sentiment.  I finished with some dyed seam binding and oval cameo bracelet finding that adds just a touch of blue!  In keeping with the oval them, I topped off my bow with an oval button!

 I am playing along with a few other blog challenges!
