Blogger's Challenge #136: Red, White, Black

This week for blogger's challenge our list Mom, Lisa challenged us to use red, white, black.  I originally wanted to use some designer paper I had but went in a whole different direction instead.

I picked Julee's Mojo Monday 124 Sketch for this card.  I've said this before, but I'll say it again, I *love* sketch challenges, all kinds of them!

This was another set I finally picked up at the Clear and Simple Stamps booth at CHA.  I had been eyeing Live Life for awhile and finally decided it was time to treat myself to it.

Make sure you check out the blogger's challenge participants for their creations using red, white, black and join in if you like!

Card details:
Stamp Sets: Art Deco and Live Life by Clear and Simple Stamps
Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red, Whisper White
Inks: Real Red, Basic Black, Versamark
Accessories: Clear embossing powder, A Blanc Check Ribbon, Circle & Scalloped Circle punch, Amuse Creative Candy
