Crazy4Challenges #24 RED....RED.....RED

Robin's challenge for the Crazies this week was an easy one for me. She challenged us to make a card using RED in the spirit of Valentine's Day. Well, RED happens to be my fav color, especially when used with black and white. I used this Fireworks Bloom stamp from Penny Black to create this dramatic RED card.  The lines on the edge of my main image were created with a white gel pen and a ruler. The CB folder I used to emboss the white panel is from the new set of Asian folders. (With my love of Asian cards, I just had to have that set!!)

Our sponsoring company is The {Stamps} of Life by Stephanie Barnard,  and when I first started on this challenge, I had no stamps by this company.  However, I was so very pleased when I was sent some digi images to play with, and that is why you are seeing two more cards, both made with digi stamps by our sponsoring company.
Now be sure to check out the teams' blog and the individual blogs of the team members. To help you do that I have listed the links below.
