This week's hostess for this week's DDC is Joan
(joan ervin), who DARED us to case something from the gallery of our very own Julia (artystamper). You just know how fabulous her site is, since she has been one of the Featured stampers on SCS!!

The hardest part is choosing what to case. I finally opted for the card here on the right, called Gingerbread Christmas Wish. I changed a few minor things, but kept the integrity of the wonderful layout!

My card is below Julia's so you can compare what
I changed, and how different our cards are. What
I DON'T want you to do is compare our abilities.
I am not in Julia's league.

I hope you will want to join us in the DARE this week. Check out Julia's gallery, and when you upload, please put DDC in your keyword so we can find your card or project. We post a new challenge in the Forum every Tuesday.

The Color Challenge today on SCS is a gorgeous combination: Melon Mambo, Kraft, and Black. The card itself is Kraft, just in case you can't see it. I know I am not Michelle Zindorf, and I have far to go in mastering the brayered technique for which she is known, but I couldn't resist trying this. Since my table was really messy from the retiform technique (or TRICK), I thought why not add to the mess, and clean it all up at once!

The only thing I felt compelled to do was to insert two teeny butterfly brads. Their color was close enough. I'll probably do another with these colors later. If you like this one, come back and look to see if I really tried again with something different.
