OLW 74: Red & Pink

I am soooo happy the OLW challenges are back!  Yippee!
These one layer challenges always pull me outside my comfort zone and when I am pleased with my results I get so hand clappingly (yes, it's a new word...my word) giddy that I dig through my stamp drawers looking for more stamps to use.  And, I usually end up using stamps that haven't seen the likes of ink since I bought them.  So, it's all good.
The challenge over at Simplicity's blog this past Wednesday was to use the colors red and pink only on a one layer card, keeping embellishments to a bare minimum.

The first card has a background by Hero Arts, image by Inkadinkadoo and sentiment by Hampton Art.


The second card incorporates a second Hero Arts background, and both image and sentiment are from Impress Rubber Stamps.


On the third card I used the Hero Arts Background I used in the first card, Lockhart image and Technique Tuesday sentiment.


Thanks, Susan....I had fun with this challenge!
And, thanks for peeking!

YOU ROCKED THIS CHALLENGE!!!! Carol, all three are fabulously fun, but I am a bit partial to the last one...the masking of the envelopes really is a great touch!
