Have you heard about the Dare to Get Dirty 08 Challenges going on this week over at Splitcoaststampers?  Here is a card for Christine’s challenge.

This beautiful floral image is from Inque Boutique’s “Victorian Flourishes”.  The sentiment and background script are from Inque Boutique’s “French Fancy”.  It is watercolored with SU! reinkers.

I did something kinda fun with the sentiment on this card.

Only part of it is showing on the card front.

The other half is on the inside of the card.

I used good ole Scotch tape to cover the part of the sentiment I didn’t want to stamp.

After inking the sentiment, I removed the tape and stamped.

Quick and easy and there are no worries about any ink getting on the unwanted part of the sentiment.

Since this is such a simple layout, I added lots of dimension for more depth and to add interest to the card.  I love my corner punch!

Hope you can find some time to play along with the Dirty Dozen Design Team and Alumni in the Splitcoaststampers DTGD 08 Challenges this week!
