Hero Arts - My Favorite Color is RED!


Are you playing Tic Tac Toe with Hero Arts?

Do you like to play A2Z Scrapbooking Supplies challenges?

That's what I'm playing today.Hero Arts Tic Tac Toe Challenge here
The A2Z Scrapbooking challenge called to me to do a card for a second member of our staff who is retiring  in July.  That was a surprise.  I wanted to make a personal card for her and will make a larger card for everyone to sign.  She likes flowers and likes bright colors.  Red's my favorite color, followed closely by blue.

My card - yes it's bright.

I haven't used this background stamp in quite some time and I don't know why I don't.  It's spectacular every time I use it.  You really can't go wrong with this background.  I clear embossed the background and rubbed a Hero Arts ink cube (Red Royal) over the top and wiped off as much of the ink on the clear as I could without wetting the cloth.  I didn't want the white to pop out on the background and even though the background is busy, it stays where it should, in the background.

A2Z Scrapbooking Supplies challenge for June HERE is all about "NEW BEGINNING!, new babies, graduations, weddings, or homes.  There MUST be at least ONE MAIN HERO ARTS product.   
Hero Arts Die Cuts 
    (Tag Frame Cuts AA),  DI085
    (circle die that came with a ticket die in the same package)
Hero Arts Stamps
    (Tea Flowers - CL858)
    (July (CL054 - A Day to Celebrate) old clear set)
    (Dot Flower Pattern CG335 - background)

Hero Arts Tic Tac Toe challenge here.  I used the third column over.
