It's That Time of Year Again-Dare to Get Dirty

If you've ever wanted to spend a week of intense stamping with lots of great ideas and inspiration then the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges are for you! Today kicked off with 6's where the inspiration took me.
Mostly monochromatic-this one is a CASE of a card by a previous queen for the day Francie G. Lots of sponging and my pear was watercolored then masked before I stamped the script. Sponged the leaves in the die and added a linen thread bow. This will go to my mom who has had a rough time with a GI infection.
