Dare to Get Dirty 1

I'm finally getting around to trying some Dirty Dozen Challenges over at Splitcoast. I really like the challenges that have been posted, so now that my new catalog order has finally come in, I'm hoping to trim the stamps and dive right in!

On these cards, I used Real Red as my card base and I ran some Whisper White through my Big Shot with a Cuttlebug A2 embossing folder. The card on the right is the simpler of the two, but on the card on the left, I brayered Real Red over the embossing to bring out the pattern. I also added a red Prima flower with a flat-backed pearl that I got at my local scrapbook store. I can't remember the brand. Also on both cards is red velvet ribbon and my new Justrite monogram stamp punched out with a non SU circle punch and a marvy scallop punch.

Thanks for looking!
