Red & White Challenge Entry

Hi - I'm here! I'm not only "here" but I have brought some crafting fun to share with you! The Design Team I am on for "The Rubber Cafe" not only sent us the yummiest goodies to share with you all but they recently issued us a "challenge"! If anything can bring me out, it's a challenge! The challenge was to make a white card with "minimal" red! Well, I don't know about you but, all white cards are tough for me! I had to think this one through so I could make the best use of the red I was allowed! We were also supposed to use our Scor-Pal too,if we have one. Well, I am lucky enough to have one and I put it up there - high on my list of "must have's"! LOL! So, after tossing a lot of ideas around in my head I came up with a great card that I got directions from Splitcoast Stampers. So I used some of the stamps from The Rubber Cafe "Valentine's Day" collection, I made this;

Here's the outside - I used my Scor-Pal and made my lines on the diagonal for a gridded effect! I also added Stickles to where the lines joined up for a little extra "uumph"!


The inside


What do you think?! I had fun making this one! Matter of fact....I made two! LOL!

Until next time....
