The theme for this week's challenge at Squigglefly is RED, show me the Red. Or show me all the REDs....this could be perfect for those valentines that are getting worked on or if you want to go in a different direction and have a funny bend, we all know what people who are seeing RED means. I have seen some adorable stamps for people who need to blow off their steam, lol!
SFC0412 - GET THE RED OUT - SQUIGGLEFLY CHALLENGE
(THERE ARE 2 CARDS ON THIS POST - Be certain to scroll downward)But I did not go that way entirely. I did make up 2 cards - one for a birthday sdhown above and one for a valentine, shown below. I went the traditional red card and everything is in red on the birthday image. The designer of this image, Betsy LePlatt, has appropriately called it SWIRLY BIRTHDAY BALLOONS!
I've used red everywhere - except the gold outline for emphasis and drama and the silver icicle Stickles that outline the swirly balloons. Those balloons remind me of the balloons the clowns used to give us when we went to the circus. They would create animals out of those long balloons and give them away. These make a lovely bouquet!
The gold in the red ribbon and the gold in the card kind of play off one another, don't you think? A bit of red distressing around the edges of the card - a very easy Birthday card for someone nearest Valentine's Day. Or simply make the card up without the birthday greeting and have a great valentine!
The following image is from Squigglefly also. I hope you like it. I hope even more my friend likes it.
