Friday Free for All.....Seeing Red!

It was Daniela's turn to host a challenge this Friday at Embellish-It Scrapbooking.

We were challenged to create a card/scrapbook page/altered item using the following:

1. The color red -- LOVE it!!
2. Buttons -- LOVE 'em!!

3. At least one stamp - oh come on!! - those who like them, like them a lot!! (Alexander Keith's motto!!)

I found some of my beloved Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper left over from last year - how I loved that paper!!

Partnered along with Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy that was run through the snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder and some Bazzill cardstock it really came together quite well!

I added a few Autumn Leaves buttons and a couple of tags of ribbon - that were truly just lying around my desk and I picked them up and they matched perfectly!!

The sentiment is from Little Paper Shop set {Christmas Wishes} and it is stamped in Papertrey Ink Dark Chocolate.

I see that the new Basic Grey Wassail is now available in the store and it is just as gorgeous!! along with the Granola, Urban Prairie, and the other Basic Grey paper packs - hurry over before the stock get's low!

Feel free to play along in our challenge today and every Friday!!. Upload to our Embellish-It Scrapbooking gallery and today use the keyword FC12 - (Friday Challenge 12) - when you upload so we can be sure to find your creation!!

Thanks for stopping by!
