Red and White

The challenge from the DCM is as follows


This week's and next week's dare are team dares - and we've decided to go nice and easy on you guys, as the past few dares have been pretty tricky ! This week, we decided on a colour combination for a change. We want you to design a card using only RED AND WHITE on your cards- it doesn't have to be a Valentine themed card - it can be any theme- as long as use incorporate RED and WHITE on it.

This is my take on it. I stamped the background with the 'Paint Spots Backgrounder' stamp from CHF and dug up my old trusted basque stamp from Stampendous and mounted it on a Spellbinders nestability circle.
The clear dots have been in my stockpile for years and apparently are back in fashion under a different name. The corners are from an Ellison die , I think it's called photo corners.
------------------

De kaartuitdaging bij DCM is maak een kaart met alleen maar rood en wit.
De achtergrondstempel is van CHF , de stempel met het corset werd ook weer eens opgeduikeld , die is van Stampendous. De cirkel is gedaan met een nestability van Spellbinders en de hoekjes met een stans van Ellison, volgens mij heet die foto corners. De doorzichtige frutseltjes heb ik al jaren in mijn knutselvoorraad maar zijn blijkbaar weer in de mode onder een andere naam.

Very dramatic-looking Ellen! And yes, they do look exactly like Dewdrops - just goes to show we should never clear 'old' items from stash since they'll come around and be 'new' again eventually ;o)

Well done Ellen - this is perfect for the red & white dare.
