Country Red

Today's card is for the SCS Limited Supply challenge, which I LOVED!! I want to do about ten more of them, because you could only use ONE color, plus white! The simplicity of just having one color is something that is just very freeing--you don't have to try to coordinate colors, just choose your images and go to it. There were lots of wonderful cards in the gallery--and some nice bright RED ones, so I chose Real Red for mine. (I know the images look a little pink in the photo, but it is all red!). The images are from a retired set called Country Collection, another $1 yard sale find! Woohoo! I stamped them in Real Red and added just a touch of ink here and there with my blender pen. The DP is Summer Picnic and a small piece from Rob & Bob's Holiday Slab. The polka dotted piece is actually adhered to the inside bottom of the card and the outside is scalloped with my corner rounder. A tiny little sentiment from PTI's Mixed Messages (love that set!) is added to my red gingham ribbon. AND I got to use my brand-new square Nestabilities!!!
Thanks for looking!

Beautiful job with this challenge. Such a pretty card. I never think to use just one color. I love all your details with the scallops and papers. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog, it's always nice to meet new people. :)
