red turquoise...

Clean and Simple

Sometimes it makes a bigger impact than a whole bunch of fussiness

I challenges and I love it when I can combine some together that result in a happy card:


I have always loved a good combo of red & blue...this card combines some fabbie Hambly paper that is their lagoon blue circles on metallic paper...g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s!  I teamed it up with Stampin' Up's Riding Hood Red that I stamped a CHF polka dot backgrounder with Versamark.  The letters are Sassy and I stitched all around and inbetween the panels.....Do you spy a smidge of Stampin' up Chocolate Chip?  Everything is nestled onto PTI kraft.  I rounded the bottom corners and called it done:)

I was inspired by the wonderful CR84FN13 challenge:


The sketch is by FTL125:


That's it for me today...remember to pop on back here tomorrow for something pretty dang fun:)

Your sketch was lovely and I really enjoyed the simplicity of it but know that I will use it again and again in so many different ways.
