Dare to Get Dirty Challenge Cards - Post 10

Welcome back Friends & Followers!  I DID IT!  I finished ALL 42 DTGD Challenges before the deadline - WOO HOO!  Never done this before, it feels GREAT and I have a nice collection of cards for my stash as well - SWEET!  Enough babbling - let's get to the cards!  The first one combined 2 challenges and uses images from Holiday Baskets by Melanie Muenchinger of Gina K. Designs:
(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution if necessary).  The background was created using the polished stone technique for Stamp TV's Chat & Challenge to use the polished stone technique - never done it before, it calls for metallic reinkers, which I do not own, so I used Yoyo Yellow, Summer Sun and Pumpkin Pie instead.  Since they had a fall feel to them I combined them with some sunflowers stamped on summer sun cardstock and cut out by hand (ouch) and popped up above the basket which is embossed with Brownie EP by Zing! directly onto the glossy cardstock base.  I added some Cinnamon Stickles to the centers of the sunflowers for some extra sparkle and pizzazz.  In addition, I have entered this card in the following additional challenges:

My second, and final DTGD creation, doesn't have any stamping or embossing at all - just adhesive - check it out:
The 'joy' is die cut from WPlus9 Designs' 'Season Sentiments' die set which was run through my Xyron (do you have one of these things?  If not - you gotta get one!  They have three sizes for every crafter and you can use a half off coupon from Michaels the next time they come around - Easy way to apply loose glitter without messy glues!) on both sides - one side I sprinkled red glitter over, the other was peeled off and adhered to the card.  Then I attached a snowflake rhinestone cluster to the center of the 'o'.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy right?  I am entering this card into the following additional challenges as well:

Thanks so much for sharing my DTGD journey with me and joining in the celebration that I finished them all!  WOO HOO!
