BC137 - Red Bird

Hey it's Friday!  We all know by now that means it's time for the Blogger Challenge of the week.  This week is a color scheme challenge...Red, Black and White.  This happens to be one of my favorite color combo's.  I always find these 3 colors to be very striking to look at.

My card this week features absolutely NO stamping at all.  Instead I chose to use my new bird punch from SU as the focal point of my card. 

The details are pretty much self explanatory so I'll just list the card ingredients and you can figure the rest out.  If you have questions you can always email me.

Don't forget to click on the Blogger Icon on my sidebar to check out the other members blogs to see their creations using this color scheme.

Card Stock: Basic Black, Real Red
Designer Paper, Flower pattern by Doodlebug design.  Dotted pattern (source unknown)
Punches by SU - Bird Punch and Scallop border
Chilli Heart Sprinkles and Black Current Sprinkle from Annabelle Stamps
Red Ribbon - Offray
Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Embossing Folder (Provo Craft)
Foam Mounting tape.
