Super Sneak Peek and Dare to Get Dirty

OOO today is a really fun day!  I have two special is that I am a Hostess in a challenge today in the Splitcoaststampers Dare To Get Dirty week!  Woo Hoo!  It's that time of year again :)  Fan Club Members can participate in special challenges each day.  Please jump in!  Many of the Dirty Dozen Girls and Alumni are hosting challenges and making samples for challenges, it's our special gift to you Fan Club Members each year.  HERE is where the challenges will be listed each day, and you can find out the details of each challenge and participate!

And my second great privilege today is that for this challenge I get to SUPER Sneak Peek a set for you from Flourishes...Jan Marie gave me permission to show off this beauty before it will be release in about 2 weeks.  It's SO gorgeous!

YUM.  This is part of these beautiful new set that will be called Italian Garden.  SIGH!  I colored up these gorgeous tomatoes with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS to achieve a really vibrant depth, and then I did a lot of framing with Spellbinders dies, Square Nestabilities, and Fleur De Lis Square Nestabilities, as well as the Fancy Scalloped Borderabilities.   And then some texture with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  The card is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches.   I can hardly wait for you to see the rest of this set!

I just love the sentiment!  I cut it up to spread it out over the card face, popping it up.  The designer papers you see peeking out are from Webster's Yacht Club paper and the ribbon is a gorgeous Ruffled Edge Sheer from the Flourishes Store. 

So be sure to check out the Challenge on Splitcoast today...I have two gorgeous sample makers in cindybstampin and Chupa as well and they're cards are gorgeous!  

Thanks for stopping by today friends :) I really hope to catch up on some commenting and visiting your blogs in the next days I'm SO behind!
