A sprinkling of Red.....

Thought I'd share with you the card I made, as part of the design team (i like saying that!) for The Cupboard Trilogy latest Challenge.

It's an 8x8" card blank which is covered by (top half) Lucy Cromwell paper, which I embossed with a heart folder. The bottom half, I've used a stripey paper from the latest papers from Docrafts the candy dots and stripes collection, they compliment each other perfectly. The central topper is made using the new docrafts die. I cut it twice and the cut one down so that it would layer one on top of each other, after I had used my distress ink to tone the white card down! A spellbinder large scalloped circle cut out in red card and a red ribbon add the touch of red. The sentiment stamped adds the romance!

I stamped the flourishes after I had embossed, but with hindsight should have done it before. Oh and for the dots in the corners I used my creative expressions pva glue and sprinkled red glitter on it while it was still wet! it sort of worked, but they did dip slightly!

Why not follow the link and take part in the challenge, there's a brilliant prize to be one, so go on have a go - it's easier than you think......
