Using Red

This week at Card Crafter's Circle we invite you to:


... with a RED colour challenge! We ask that your creations be predominantly red, or all red! We are excited to introduce a new sponsor this week, Digi Darlas Designs!!  

One randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of five (5) digital images from  Digi Darlas Designs! ... thank you for such a generous prize!

My little card uses Darla's little girl with balloons. This image would look equally at home on a birthday card, but since I made my assignment prior to this week, I went with a Valentine theme. I've used DPs from a pad of paper by Recollections. My card base is white with a layer of red card and then the DP papers. My doily is made using a Marianne Die. I colored my image with Copic markers except for her little dotty dress which I paper pieced using a bit of scrap from my scrap bag. I fussy cut the image and placed it over the white doily using foam dots for dimension. I then added the flowers (Spare Parts from Hobby Lobby) and the leaves (Recollections from Michael's Crafts). To finish it off, I cut out my words from a piece of paper by We R Memory Keepers.

Even though Valentine's Day was yesterday, red is such a lovely color with which to work (it is also my favorite color). We would like to see what you do with this vibrant color -- will you combine it with white only; with black and white; with green or gold or even pink? Let your imagination soar and then show us what you can do! Go over to Card Crafter's Circle and enter for your chance to win those 5 wonderful images from Digi Darla. Card Crafter's Circle is also having a DT call, so if you are interested in being on a wonderful design team, take a few minutes to look at the requirements. This is a wonderful team with a great "leader" so if you've been wanting to try your hand at a design team, this may be your chance.


  1. She's just adorable in her red polka dot dress! Great papers to Jenee!

  2. I really do like the way you split the sentiment up into the little blocks....great idea to cut from paper, Jenee. Sweet image and the paper piecing is lovely.....looks so pretty against the doily....another wonderful card for your stash!
