Colorful Options - RED


It's time for a new challenge over on Colorful Options.
This month the color theme is RED and here's
a mood board created for your inspiration . . .


 Remember, this is a MONTHLY challenge so you have until the 28th
at 8:00 pm (CST) to join in the fun.
Not a fan of the color RED?  Well then you have the option
of creating something in rainbow colors.

This is NOT just a CARD challenge, you can create anything you wish
as long as you follow the theme of the color RED or Rainbow.

I was inspired by the red rose as well as the red/white & black color scheme on the butterflies. 
I found this beautiful rose in the snow image over on Pinterest
so I printed it off onto a 4x6 glossy photo panel to use for my focus image.

I've used a black card base and then I decided to use an older Memory Box 'Scattered Snowflake Frame' (#99222) for my background.  


It looked so pretty on the black background that I didn't want to hide all of it by placing my image over top so did a little 'snipping' then tucked my image in and around the snowflakes.  The sentiment comes from the Pretty Pink Posh stamp set called 'Encouraging Greetings' and I popped it up using dimensional tape.  The inside was left blank so this card could be used for a note of encouragement or even as a sympathy card.

Here's the FABULOUS PRIZE you'll be playing for this time around ...

 I hope you'll come check it out and play along!
Thanks for stopping by!
