color challenge - in red

Melissa Phillips is hosting another color challenge using this photo from A Creative Mint. This photo is one of my favorites and I love the post that it's from here. All of the colors remind me of Mish's red & cream inspiration post that she did here.


And here's my card inspired from the photo...


I love the eclectic, vintage, collage look that happened. The hearts are die cut from vintage red wool felt and then I layered on the elements and stitched around the edges. I really just stamped up the other bits and pieces and then played with the layout until it was something I liked.


Maybe next time, I will do the color challenge without hearts ;)

Also, make sure if you haven't that you head over to Nichole's blog and welcome our newest distinguished guest designer, Kelly Purkey! There are more great contests to celebrate Papertrey Ink's 3rd anniversary going on today as well - don't miss out!
