Waltzingmouse August Soap ~ Day 1

August 1. Another month has begun! Today is the beginning of SOAP week for Waltzingmouse. Claire releases every other month now, and on the alternating month the design team features the previously released sets. This week we'll be focusing on:

Cameo to Go
Cameo Creations
Ovals, Classic Frames
Big Day Essentials
Big Day Additions
Eat Cake
You're Lovely
and Flourishes – Scallops and Dots

I used the sets Cameo Creations, and Ovals, Classic Frames. I made the background design with the small criss-cross pattern from the Cameo Creations set. I love the diamond grid it made when piecing them together. The leaves on the middle square panel are from the Ovals, Classic Frames set. Lastly, the Cameo center, from the Cameo Creations set, was stamped with Smokey Gray Versafine, embossed with Clear ep, and cracked. I also added a trio of rhinestones.

I made this card, as a sample, for the Dare To Get Dirty sketch challenge, hosted by AmberDawn, over at Splitcoast Stampers too. Click HERE to learn about all the details. (Heads up: This challenge doesn't go up until 8 am Central) There's a wonderful variety of inspirational challenges, hosted by the Dirty Dozen Alumni. It's well worth your while to check it out. :)

That about sums up everything involved with today's card. Here's a list of all the WMS dt gals who are participating in today's SOAP. If you've missed any along the way, be sure to stop by. These gals are amazing!!
