Good morning. Some of you may have read my post last night announcing a winner of my Melody Mints. Obviously, in my half-asleep state, that was in error and I have edited the post to correct it. However, since I did announce a name to win, I am going to send something out to Susie anyway. It just won't be that stamp set, since that wouldn't be fair to the rest of you. So Susie, please email me your snail address, so I can send you some goodies.

Now, on to my card. I finished another Dare to Get Dirty challenge late last night or I should say early this morning. I was going to post it -- even started -- but I just couldn't keep my eyes open, so I decided to wait until this morning, so my post would at least make sense. This card was for Julie's challenge (for SCS fan club members only).

I really love Julie's style, very clean, with very little stamping or embellishment. I think I accomplished that with this card, which is a single layer card. I started by stamping the single coneflower on whisper white in black stazon. I then colored it with prismacolor pencils and gamsol and added a bit of copic markers over the top and for shading. The sentiment was also stamped in black stazon. For embellishment, I added some rhinestones and ribbon. DONE! How simple is that?

stamps: single coneflower & sentiment (Cornish Heritage Farms)
ink: jet black stazon
paper: whisper white
other: prismacolor pencils, gamsol, copic markers, rhinestones, white sheer ribbon

Thank you for stopping by today.
