O is for Outrageous at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers.....

I can't believe it's February, one step closer to Spring!!! The new challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers  O is for Outrageous and once you have a peek at the cards from the design team you will see there are all different ways to do outrageous. There is two weeks between challenges and for those two weeks I've brainstormed on what would be outrageous to me and finally a light bulb moment happened. Here is my outrageous card.

You might now think this is very outrageous but I don't craft with orange and I just thought she looked outrageous in her "danriver" dress, you have to be old to know what that is lol. The image is from Art Impressions  -"golden oldies" and the sentiment is from Rubber Dance Stamps. I added some Plaid paper glaze as I couldn't find the glossy accents due to a cat waling on my table and knocking if off.  The sketch is from Tuesday Morning Sketches and loosely interpreted. 

Coffee cup brads, wow from a package dated 2006 from Hot off the Press probably bought in a clearance bin somewhere on my travels. 

The sentiment is only a tad sarcastic and it's from Art Impressions as well. As you see there is a mish-mash of die cuts, seems I was having trouble designing the card and kept playing with my dies until I found the Sketch so instead of tossing them in my scrap basket I used them on the inside of the card.

I am entering this in:

Seize the Birthday anything goes with toppings (no topping today)

Thanks for looking today and we would love to have  you take up the Outrageous challenge.
