PPA15 Color Challenge

PPA 15 is a color challenge. Use Ruby Red, Taken with Teal and Basic Gray in your project. Upload it to our challenge website: Pals Paper Arts and join us playing with stamps and paper!
I enjoyed making this card. It's called a Side Step card and the original design is by Jackie Topa. I got my instructions from Julie Davison's tutorial.

The card base involves one cut of your 8-1/2 x 5-1/2" piece of card stock. There are 5 scores. Then you are ready to "decorate" your card base with stamps, bling, punches, etc. I used the Eastern Blooms set and cut out the small flower images to put onto the first and second rows of my card. I left a little room on the back row under the sentiment so I could write a personal message. Here is what the card looks like from the side:

Your card will fit in a regular size envelope.

I hope you enjoy looking at my creation. I would love to read your comments, so please leave one!
