Seeing RED! Crazy 4 Challenges #24

Yep, we're seeing RED at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog today!! Robin is our challenge hostess and she wants us to use red as our primary color. SO not a problem ;-)

For my card, I chose to go CAS, inspired by this image from SCS CAS Challenge #53 :) And, I'm using SCS Sketch Challange #267 for my layout.

My base card is PTI white card stock. Then I added a layer of Pure Poppy and a layer of Simple Valentine patterned paper. I cut the three hearts out of more white card stock with my Scalloped Heart Nestabilities, tied a red satin bow around, stamped the sentiment, from Simple Valentine, added three Pure Poppy Vintage buttons, and popped it up on foam. VERY simple and I love it!!! What do you think? Did I meet the challenges?

NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
