The Kraft Journal #58!

 This week at The Kraft Journal we are coloring with RED!!!   The 58th challenge is titled 'Color Me Red' and we are to use red somewhere in our design ... too much fun -- I LOVE red as it's just a darker shade of PINK!

For today's 'Color me Red challenge, I started my card off on a base of Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock.  Layered on top of that is a piece of pretty patterned paper in a red and white gingham pattern from The Scrapcake followed by a layer of blush cardstock.  Next, I added some blingy glittered alphas to spell out L-O-V-E which I then layered on various paper doilies, tickets and papers.  A pretty fabric bloom was adhered to the paper doilie and then a sentiment tag was created by using white craft ink stamped onto a piece of Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock and then inking the edges with vanilla paint to create a time-worn look.  Lastly, I added a die cut butterfly made from Lunch Bag Kraft cardstock, some Red Baker's Twine, a Tiny Wooden Clothespin and a couple of Garnet Stick Pins.  

Please be sure to visit The Kraft Journal challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from the other teamies this week and then I hope you'll have time to give our 'Color Me Red' challenge a try!!
