Catered Crop: Seeing Red

It's time for a new challenge at Catered Crop.  We are "seeing red"!

Linda, at Catered Crop, writes:

Bold, luxurious and sexy Red! The Hollywood red carpet, red light districts, homespun gingham, roses, valentines, kick a** lipstick, cherries, apples, and blushing cheeks . . . royalty, danger and passion . . 

She doesn't mention Christmas, but what better for a red challenge than some crisp and clean, red and white Christmas snowflakes!?

Snow and Ornaments

These are a few items from the Stamptember release at Simon Says Stamp.  I got the Holiday Frame die on the day it was released. I imagine so many uses for it, from cute to elegant.  It took me a couple of weeks to decide on the snowflakes, then I saw this card by Debby Hughes.  I want everything that I see Debby Hughes use!  This is the Presents and Ornaments set and it's full of handy basics like these snowflakes, a number of different sized presents and bows, and a chevron border. Much of it will be handy year-round.

Linda has curated this Pinterest board full of inspiration.  Here's a peek. Notice that the card doesn't have to be all red - just a focus on red.

Then next week, all of the design team cards will be gathered together on the Catered Crop blog along with a few guest designers.

I look forward to seeing the Catered Crop gallery full of red!
