Dirty Girl/Dirty Girl Alumni Monthly Challenge

I have one more for you today...I made this one after the Inauguration...wasn't that moving!! We live in a wonderful time....history in the making!!

The DD/DDA challenge this month was to make a Valentine with texture and NO red. Thank goodness we could use pink!!

The Rubbernecker Three Flower Heart image was stamped on Pink Pirouette with Memento Rich Cocoa four times and extra images were stamped so the flowers could be cut out and attached over the flowers on the main images. Tiny pearls were added to the centers after the flowers were colored with copics. The Rubbernecker sentiment was stamped with Chocolate Chip Craft and embossed with clear ep (added texture). The edges were sponged with Regal Rose.

I used a piece of Rose Romance dp that I have been holding onto for years....it blended perfectly with the dp and the Pink Pirouette. I only have 2 pieces left....ooooh, makes me nervous!!!

The Chocolate Chip layer was run through the cuttlebug (more texture) and the designer paper came from the Basic Grey Bittersweet 6 inch pad.
Ribbon and lace trim finish it off.

You can see the other DD/DDA cards here.

Oh Joan, it never ceases to amaze me what you can do with a few stamps, ink and papers, your card is incredibly beautiful. It will be a special one for you to make having used almost the last of that pretty paper. I love all the texture you created and the embellishments of paper tole and the lace are perfect. I agree with you about the inaugeration, we watched it too, definitely history in the making. Hugs, Chris
