I'm having so much fun stamping in the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges! This is for Kittie747's challenge. I'm also loving using up goodies from my stash! I had this inked and embossed piece for the bg (can't find that ef in my cave anymore...I hope it didn't find its way into the trash by mistake) I also had the faux denim bg piece that you can barely see anymore. The pansies were some I made a while back using ideas from this tutorial from Valita's Designs. Mainly uses reinkers, an Aqua pen and the butterfly punch. Dimension is added using a stylus and I also rolled my edges a bit along the edge of my piercing tool. The leaves are folded in half and crimped on the bias then punched while still folded. I popped one on a dimensional and another on a thicker foam circle. I added a tag and a ribbon with a fork bow.

Gail, this is so pretty! Thanks so much for the link to Valita, I borrowed that punch and did about 100 last year. They sit in a zip lock.....til now! Lol. Thanks for the inspiration. Love your tips on the leaves too, now to find the crimper.... Beautiful work!
