SCRAP THE GIRLS' July Challenge

I've got so much to share lately! Lol! Must mean I've been busy creating... and I'm loving it.  The challenge at Scrap The Girls this month is to use Black, White and 'one other colour' on your layout.  Pretty easy, hey?  Just remember, ONLY girls allowed.  You can see all the other CT members' gorgeous examples HERE.
Here is my example.  And I had to use red, of course. :)
A close up of some of my embellies.  Love the Prima 'Shabby Chic' Resin Treasures. The flowers are mini paper blooms from Kaisercraft and I finally got to use some of my Tim Holtz film strip that's been in my stash for ages.
The acetate frame is from Teresa Collins that has also been hiding in my stash for a while.
Used one of my Martha Stewart 'die cut lace tags' and a Memory Box die to cut the red doily.
The stamp I used is from Kaisercraft. Love their texture stamps and they are so well priced too. :)
I hope you are all going to give this challenge a go!  There are some great prizes up for grabs!
That's all for today.  Will be back sometime over the weekend with my first DT layout with my kit from Handmade by Suzanne.
Until then... happy scrapping!
