#90 Seeing Red

That's the theme for the challenge over at One Stitch at a Time - Seeing Red. Teri, of Delicious Doodles, over at Stitchybear, has this wonderful image of a geranium stand and that's the one I chose for this challenge.

My card is a large scalloped square by Craft UK and I used Distress Ink on the edges. The red/gold mottled card is from Papermill and the red splodge backing paper is from the Garden Fairies paper pack number one by Oase of Panda Bear Designs, again at Stitchybear's Digital Store. I cut the backing paper with a scalloped grand nestie before backing with a square of red/gold mottled card. The red and black lace paper is from one of Joanna Sheen's lace paper pads. I cut round one section of lace and used it as a strip across the backing paper. The digi was coloured with Promarkers, cut with a Spellbinders nestie oval and backed with the scalloped oval nestie. Three red gem flowers, from my stash, are in each corner at the top.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Stitchybear!
We have visitors coming for lunch so I've scheduled this post and will enter the challenges later in the day.
I'm entering my card in to the following challenges:
