The Corrosive Challenge #123 - Red and White



Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!!! That means it's time for another Corrosive Challenge! This week for challenge #123 we want to see Red and White creations. You are allowed to use one other neutral color, but the main colors of your project need to be red and white. It's the first challenge of a new month so we have new sponsors and new prizes! We'd like to welcome our TWO sponsors for July - Tiddly Inks and Whimsie Doodles! To see what fabulous prizes are up for grabs and to ogle the rest of the design team's wonderful cards, visit the Corrosive Challenge blog here.

Mine is a birthday card for a very special friend of mine, J! She is as fun and as sweet as they come and much to my delight she took an interest and a liking to my beloved hobby. She is innately artistic so has just flourished with the craft! Her card had to be unique and fabulous, just like her, so I selected one of the Sweet November Zodiac images that I purchased some time ago and had yet to use. (Actually, I won this image in rubber along with a gorgeous card from the wonderful Amy Y when they were first released, but I bought the digi too since I tend to use them more.) This image is, of course, Cancer - the zodiac sign for those born between June 22nd and July 22nd. I thought that would work nicely with the red and white color scheme. I used one piece of designer paper from a pad purchased for $5 at Big Lots. I never would have thought to shop there for crafting supplies, but J shared her bargain finds with me and sent me scurrying for deals of my own! The pearl swirls are also from the same store. Some Prima flowers and a Die-namic from My Favorite Things finish it off nicely. The sketch is SSS115, courtesy of The Sweet Stop.

We are in the middle of 4th of July weekend here so I will be heading off to a cookout at a friend's later on today. They are predicting possible thunderstorms, but I hope they are wrong as she has a pool, and I can't wait to take my small man "swimming". He's not yet 2, but if he's anything like his momma he'll be the kid always in the pool whenever he has the chance!

Wishing you all a fun and safe weekend! Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop back throughout the week to see what else I've been up to...
