DD/DDA January Challenge and Mojo Monday Card

Happy Tuesday!
I'm so excited to be playing along in my first DD/DDA Challenge!
Jodi is our hostess this month and these were the rules she set:
Challenge Focus: A Valentine's Day/Love-y Dove-y card!!
Required Element: Texture!! Anything you can *feel* (ie: Fun Flock, Crystal Effects, Embossing/Debossing, velvet ribbon...and I am sure there are a million more things that I cannot think about!!)
Restricted Element: No RED!! Pink is ok...but no red...let's see what other colors we can use for Valentine's Day!
I think I followed the rules...you all know I am not a rule breaker :)
For my texture I have Glossy Accents, Fun Flock and Glitter.
Stop by the gallery at SCS with these keywords DCFTL0109 to see what the other girls have created!
Stamps: Love is Sweet; Cardstock: White, Regal Rose, So Saffron and Georgia Peach dp; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Nesties, Silver Brads, Circle Punch, Heart Trio Punch, Word Window Punch, Sizzix Heart Dies, Acetate, Xyron Machine, Glitter, Pink Fun Flock, Glossy Accents, Dimensionals
After working on my DD/DDA January Challenge card I moved on to Julee's Mojo70 sketch. I'm so sad that Season of Friendship did not make it into the new catty :(
Well that isn't going to stop me from using it! I used the new set called A Little Somethin' Somethin' too.
This is a SU! only card.
Stamps: Season of Friendship, A Little Somethin' Somethin'; Cardstock: White, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Old Olive and Georgia Peach DP; Inks: Olive, Saffron, Regal Rose; Accessories: Silver Brads, Coluzzle, Paper snips, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!
ETA: My SECOND card is the SU!....I started my post before loading the cards...sorry!

Love both cards, especially the second one. I have this set and have only used it once...don't know why, because I love it! Let's hold out hope that it makes the Fall/Winter catty!

Well...you know I LOVE your Dirty challenge card, and your tree is also very pretty!! I love the colors/papers, and layouts on both of these fabulous cards, Dawn!!

Love your cards. The bottom one really speaks to me in particular.

Rebecca Ednie said...

Are you sure your first card is SU! only? I didn't know they made that die cut shape, stamp set, memento ink or fun flock. I am going to have to look through the new catty again! Oh, and the clear heart, how did you do that?

Rebecca Ednie said...

Btw, I love the card! Forgot to add that at the end of my questions!
