Bloggers' Challenge #80 --- So Very LATE!!!


Well....you KNOW I'm behind! There is probably no way I can go back and make up all the Challenges that I've missed, but I just may try....we'll see!! Today's submission is from last week's Blog Challenge. It is a color challenge using Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, any red...I used Riding Hood Red....and a basic, like Vanilla or Whisper White. These colors actually look GREAT together, if I may say so! Not sure I would have ever thought to put them together, but I really like this combination....and you know I don't always say that for the combo challenges!! LOL!

I pulled out the Ronald McDonald House set, So Many Scallops, and decided to use that as the featured focal point. I had seen this idea with the mini brads in the lollipop flowers on my friend, Gina's blog, and thought it was an awesome idea! So, I borrowed the idea (Thanks, Gina!)....but the card is very different.

As you can see, this was stamped in Baja Breeze onto Whisper White and punched out with the fabulous Square Scallop Punch. The brads were added (Ruby Red Mini Brads match very well!), and layered onto a square of Chocolate Chip. The Riding Hood Red was stamped in the same color ink with Twill. Always was used for the center of the Build-A-Brad, and it works so well here!

Thanks, as always, for stopping by and making your visit a part of your day!
