Creative Card Crew: Seeing Red

Good morning!  It's time for another fun challenge from the Creative Card Crew team; our challenge this fortnight is "Seeing Red" and our sponsor is Pizzazz Aplenty.

When I was planning my card for this challenge, I thought of Stella's Red Hat Society images, but as I was looking through my stamps I came across this fun image.  Since it's so close to Valentine's Day, I thought I would go with it.  I've been hoarding this DP, but thought it would go perfectly with Stella so I finally took the plunge and cut into it.  Does anybody else have that problem?  Not wanting to actually use your supplies?  Yes, I do realize that there is plenty more DP out there!  LOL

Stella is colored with pencils and accented with glitter.  I couldn't resist adding glitter to her fancy boots...wish I had a pair of those!  I used a simple layout and embellished my card simply with ribbon and a diecut sentiment.

Image: Totally Stampalicious
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Real Red and Elegant Eggplant, Carolee's Creations DP
Embellies: Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter (wings), Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust" (on red), PTI Pure Poppy Grosgrain Ribbon, SU! Eggplant Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinders Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

What do you think?  Is she a hot tamale or what?  LOL  I hope you will head on over to the Creative Card Crew blog to check out the rest of the DTs' creations.  I would love to see your take on "Seeing Red" too!

Thanks for stopping by!

I LOVE Stella. You've colored her beautifully, such nice shading on the dress. Pretty dsp, too, lol! I'm a hoarder, too. Now you say you can always get more, but what if you can't find the exact same pattern? (see how bad my problem is??!!). Glad you cut into it, it is great with Stella!

A very lovely card my friend! Stella is looking really good with her glitter boots.

And yes I am the same: I always want to save all my stuff. So brave of you to cut the design paper...I know how scary it must have been! LOL
