Dare to Get Dirty Challenges - Post 6

Hello Friends & Followers!  I'm back with more for you!  I have three cards for you in this post and (GASP!) NONE of them involve coloring (I KNOW!  and I LOVE to color!!)  First, a card that fulfilled 4 of the DTGD challenges over on SCS that uses WPlus9 Design's Love Birds stamp set and coordinating dies:
(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  I created the pink heart background using Papertrey Ink's Background Basics: Hearts set.  I am entering this card in the following additional challenges:


My second card only met the requirements of one DTGD challenge, but I really like it just the same:
I used Papertrey Ink's Frog Hop stamp set and coordinating dies and kept it simple with just Lucky Limeade and Garden Green cardstock & inks.  I think this will make a nice birthday card for one of my numerous nephews!  I am also entering this card in the following additional challenges as well:


This brings me to the last of the three cards I have for you today - this one satisfied FIVE DTGD challenges (I think that is a record for me... not sure though...).  It uses the cute little bunny from There She Goes Clear Stamps' 'Good Times' set and some more DP from MME's Sunshine stack (I think that stack is becoming one of my favorites, I am going to be sad when it is all used up!):
Do you have any idea how difficult it was for me NOT to color this bunny?  LOL!  I need to learn that sepia coloring technique where you are shading with lots of shades of brown - that would have looked nice on this card.  I aged the Very Vanilla cardstock with some Memento Rich Cocoa, Crumb Cake and Close to Cocoa inks and sponged some on the ivory lace I used too.  That paper& ribbon flower accent could not have been possible without the use of glubers (which I actually got in this cool Cosmo Cricket paper kit I saw at Tuesday Morning, which I had originally purchased because I loved the stamp set in it, LOL!)  This card actually is not very 'me' at all - lots of challenges that aren't my style, but that is why they call them'challenges' right?  I am also entering this card in the following additional challenges:


Thanks again for stopping by - I will have more for you to see tomorrow, so you all come back now, 'y hear?  ;)
