DTGD Hoppy Birthday and Flowers

Good morning! Are you ready for some more fabulous Dare to Get Dirty (DTGD) challenges on Splitcoaststampers (SCS)? I hope so. There are prizes involved, and who doesn't love winning a prize? There are five new challenges posted today and one of them is mine. I can't really give you the specifics of my challenge because we're to keep it a secret for the Fan Club members only of SCS. So, if you're a Fan Club member, you can get all the dirty details in the DTGD forum. If you're not a member, you might consider becoming one. Here's a link on how to join the SCS Fan Club.

Here are my two cards I made for my challenge today.

For my first card, I used this fun birthday frog from Rubbernecker Stamps.  I heat embossed the image first with black embossing powder and then water colored it with Ranger Distress Inks.  I then ran the image panel through my Big Shot with an embossing folder.

 Here's a closer view...

Supplies I used:
Stamps:   Frog Holding Balloons  and Hoppy Hoppy Text by Rubbernecker Stamps
Paper:  White, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, More Mustard dp (Stampin' Up)

 For my embossed flower card, I used this solid floral image.  I heat embossed it with brown embossing powder onto designer paper and then ran that through my Big Shot with the square lattice embossing folder.

Paper: Stampin' Up Bordering Blue, Crumb Cake; Bazzill Brown; My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus dp

Hard work pays well... this is to be trusted blind-foldedly if one considers a career in any industry, but there is something that matters far more than the monetary gain, and that is Fame, which an efficient SEO marketing can drive home.www.searchenginemarketingcanada.ca

If you are aiming to be seen immediately amongst the top search engine rankers, then SEO is not for you. No doubt that SEO is long term investment for any business but it is usually a slow process.http://www.onlinemarketingcanada.ca/
