Dare To Be You

Wow, did we get a late start today! Everybody slept in, which was really good (especially for really pregnant mommy LOL), but I feel like my day is almost over! I didn't get to stamp much this weekend, but the weekend was filled with good family time, birthday celebrations and house cleaning. . .much needed house cleaning. :)

Anyway, I decided to look to the Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS, Faux Denim, to get some stamping in today. I used the Polka Stars set and Dare To Be set from Verve Stamps. I thought a patriotic card would go well with the Faux Denim look. You can see lots of other wonderful creations using this technique in the technique challenge gallery.

Don't forget that sneak peeks of the newest Verve release start Wednesday on the Verve Blog! The release is this Friday at 9pm Eastern in the Verve Forum. In the meantime, there are Release Week Sketch Challenges that you can participate in and win new stamps! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Polka Stars, Dare To Be (Verve Stamps); Ink- Blue Bayou, Night of Navy, Whisper White Craft (SU); Paper- Blue Bayou (SU), Pure Poppy (PTI); Accessories- hemp, buttons (Foofala); Finished card measures 4.25"x5.5"

I hadn't seen this challenge. What a cool effect you achieved. Great way to put that gorgeous background to good use too.
