TTIC #60 - Red

I got an idea for this week's challenge from Twilight Tuesday right away, so, I jumped on it!:)

Here's what the lovely Erica said:

"Creative portion: Create a project either using the color red or expressing what red means to you.
Comment portion: Tell your best “red” story. Is it that great red dress that caught everyone’s attention, have you “seen” red before, anyone like Red Velvet cake? Anything goes!"

I subscribe to the feed for Haute Macabre, and a while back they had a link to this template, so, of course I downloaded it immediately! I've just been biding my time, waiting for that perfect opportunity to try it out, and when I saw this week's challenge I knew it was time.

Here's what the template looked like when I printed it out...

And here's my completed card...

You can see the size better here(I have smallish hands)...

Cardstock from Bazzill Basics. Stamp from Artful Inkables. Inks from Studio G.

Red brings many things to mind for me. Blood. Rage. Lipstick. Silk. Velvet Curtains. Pie Filling. Hearts.;) I don't think I really have a red story to tell. I definitely have "seen" red before.;) I do, of course, like red velvet cake. Ooh, and I love chocolate covered cherries! My new phone is red, too.(I know, I'm so random)

Thanks for looking, hope you like it!:)
