Color Challenge at Repeat Impressions

The first Wednesday of each month at Repeat Impression’s blog, The House that Stamps Built, is going to be a color challenge. We give you the color inspiration, and you can make a card using those colors to possibly win a great prize of Repeat Impressions rubber! Here is the color palette chosen this month:
Kraft is one of my favorite colors to make cards with, and red cards make me happy, so this card was easy to design. I started with a kraft card base and layered a piece of red on top with a beautiful border cut with two curved border dies from Spellbinders. I heat embossed a large dragonfly from Repeat Impressions with a sparkly black embossing powder and cut it out. I stamped a smaller dragonfly and a perfect sentiment and the happy card was done.

I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Crafting from the Heart and the Design Team Showcase.
