Seeing RED!

Quick post with cards (sorry no yada yada right now). I want to get back to card making so will blah blah blah later this evening.

Hitting the challenge rounds...yeah for Bubble time! I worked this card so it would meet requirements for THREE challenge blogs. Wooooohooooooo!

Challenge at Saturday Spotlight called for using a non-card/craft household item. (See paperclip and red netting - from a bag of some type of produce.) This is my first check-in with Saturday Spotlight. Challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges called for the color RED as the card feature item. (This one is obvious by looking at the card in general.) Challenge at Our Creative Corner called for using something from the stash that has been un-touched, un-used, forgotten, get the drift. (This includes the metal frame flower, the weird little mirror, the feather, and crayon button, and vellum envelope - haven't used the envelope punch in quite a long time - plus the sticker on the envelope - which is in my sticker-stash - haven't used one of these SU! stickers in about a year.

Household Greetings
~Base card - PTI Vintage Cream
~Layer of My Minds Eye
~Chipboard polka dot frame - Making Memories Travel
~Left lower corner items: cherry stamp (Hero Arts Cleardesign Cupcakes) colored with Copics, red metal framed flower - dotted with black gel pen, plastic swirl embellishment
~Right upper corner items: velum envelope made with envelope punch, embroidered edge mirror, feather, crayon button, Stampin' Up sticker, paper clip, and mesh netting (Transfer of Crap from sista Gail) the way... it is snowing AGAIN!
