Use Red @ Diva's

Good Morning everyone, time for a new challenge at


and this week Rebekah wants you to 

Use Red

That shouldn't be a problem with all the Christmas cards we are all (if you are anything like me) rushing to make!

Kept this one nice and simple, recoloured the image in Photoshop to print in red not black, a bit of double matting, a lovely crisp gingham ribbon and bow and a rub on sentiment - Bob's your uncle - done in a flash! Might even whizz a few more of these out! It does look a bit pink but I can assure you the cardstock is bright white! so difficult to photograph.

The super image is from this weeks sponsor

Head over to the main challenge blog for all the details and some gorgeous inspiration from my teammies.

That's it from me today, thank you for stopping by

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges
