Dare to Get Dirty!

If you are a Fan Club Member at Splitcoast (and why wouldn't you be :) )....the next few days are a highlight of the year in my opinion. Dirty Girl and Alumni challenges all day today, tomorrow and Saturday. Absolute FUN. It's called Dare to Get Dirty! I know the all the girls have some awesome challenges ahead!

I'm blessed to be a sample maker for my friend Tracy Harp today we served together on the Dirty Dozen for a few months. I won't tell you the details of the challenge, as that's exclusive to Fan Club members, but I will show you what I made.

This is the new Medallion set from SU. I thought it was so elegant looking! Inside the windowed purse are 4 cards and matching envelopes.

I have to say I was very inspired by Val's Note Box tutorial here, (she's SO innovative!) but didn't use her tutorial to do this as I wanted to revamp something slightly different for myself. I may do a tutorial on how to make this project after the DTGD challenges are over, if there's any interest.

Above is the card where I added Crystal effects around the medallion to give it some lovely shine and dimension.

What I love about this project....the classy-ness, how it would be great as a gift, the window in the purse to the cards, and that it's a portable gift like a little purse!

Recipe: Stamps: Medallion, So Many Sayings, All Holidays; Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede; Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Soft Suede, Confetti Cream, Rich Razzleberry DSP, Soft Suede DSP, Window Sheet; Accessories: Big Shot, Labels 4 Nestabilities, Rich Razzleberry Dotted Ribbon, Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Linen Thread, Dimensionals, Sponge, Crystal Effects, Modern Label Punch, Latte Buttons, Scor It, Sticky Tape
