Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby...

Hiya folks! I just can't get that song by the Kaiser Chiefs out of my head... it's what made me chose the new challenge theme over at Pollycraft Challenges today... RUBY RED! Also RUBY is the birthstone for July. Here's my card, using Shelby from the Lil Dumplings range at Pollycraft...
We'd like to see RED as the dominant colour in your creations this fortnight. Red isn't a colour I use a lot of... it kind of scares me when I colour with it lol! I coloured her with Promarkers... I thought I'd give her red hair too... so I hope she's used Factor 50 sunscreen with her complexion! I really enjoyed doing this little card (it's 4"x4" so dinky), and I used paper scraps from my scrap box. The little bikini I have had FOREVER... I thought it was perfect for my card. If you join in the Pollycraft Challenge, you could get your hands on a £10 voucher for a shopping spree at Pollycraft Digital Stamps! There's also a Craft for Credit scheme that Paula is running, you can find the details HERE! What are you waiting for? Stuck for ideas? Pop by the challenge blog and check out all the ruby red lovelies my teamies have made!
