Clear Dollar Sneak Peek Challenge
For our July sneak peeks, the Clear Dollar dt was issued a couple challenges. And I LOVE challenges... they really help fine-tune the creative process and give you a springboard from which to jump into a project. This card actually answers TWO challenges: a sketch design and a color combo requirement (apricot, copper & white). Now here are the goods on the goods:

The stamps are part of the "Charlie Frolic" set from Clear Dollar, available for purchase tomorrow, July 1. Other stuff: Bazzill cardstock (all the colored stuff) and Stampin' Up Confetti White cs, Bo Bunny dp, Staz-On "Timber Brown" ink (Charlie and the phrase), Ranger "Tea Dye" Distress ink (sponged on all the edges), Ranger "Gun Metal" Stickles, Nestabilities oval and circle dies, Creative Cafe glitter brads, Prima flowers, Fancy Pants lace trim, May Arts ribbon, Ornare paper-piercing template & tool, twine (from the hardware store!) and embroidery floss (from my cross-stitching supplies!). Please check out my fellow dt members' sneak peeks (I'm gonna post links to their blogs - FINALLY - in my sidebar in just a sec) for a look at ALL the new sets to be released tomorrow. Then have fun shopping! And thanks for dropping by here today!

Ok..I just ordered the cooking sets from CD Stamps and after seeing your Charlie cards I just may have to place another order! I love what you did with the set!

How funny, I'd have never thought to put him on his front feet kicking his BACK feet up...but it works! That's the great thing about this Charlie...he's pretty versatile. Great job on the sketch and color challenges.

Charlie looks like he's having a blast and kicking up his heels to show it! I particularly love your choice of papers with this stamp!
