Default APR08VSNM ~ Saturday 5pm ~ ***Rolling Out the Red Carpet*** Chat Thread

Title: Rolling Out the Red Carpet
Hostess: Andrea / stampiní andrea
Keyword: APR08VSNM
Date/Time: Saturday, April 5, 5 p.m. EDT/ 2 p.m. PDT

Check out the gallery for this challenge HERE

The newest fashion trends are often found gliding down the red carpet at important award shows like the Emmys, Grammys, and Oscars. The red carpet is an iconic representation of one of the most important backdrops of celebrity fashion. Red is a dramatic color that packs a punch and can bring drama to any situation.

Your challenge is to create a card that uses red as the focal point and is reminiscent of the red carpet. Any shades of red can be used (true red, burgundy, cranberry, etc.) along with any neutrals (white, black, kraft, vanilla, gray, etc.). Remember - use REDS and NEUTRALS ONLY.

Red needs to be the focal point of the card and the neutrals should only be used to complement the red(s). The card can be of any theme EXCEPT it CANNOT be a Valentineís Day card or a Christmas card.

Hope you have fun playing my challenge! I canít wait to see your creations!

***ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 11:00 PM Eastern ON SUNDAY, APRIL 6***

**You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.

Uploading Instructions:
*Please remember to put in the correct keyword when uploading your image. If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.
*It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

This is so awesome... I have this gorgeous red paper that I bought after the shopping list was posted.. but I have a quick question.... I have a pretty red flower embellishment that I want to use but it's got green leaves and stems... is that allowed?

Well, I'm a little bit behind, just reading this challenge now. But red is my favorite color, so I have to do this. I'll be back when my card is done.

This is a great challenge. My favorite color combo is red and black so here is my Paisley Father's Day card.

I love red in cards, and go through red paper probably more than any other color. Here is my card... http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=93346

Here's mine... I'm not sure if I followed all the rules... I don't really have a focal "image". The paper is just so beautifully patterned all by itself. Hope you like it.... tfl
