Smeared Ink Weekly Challenge Time!

Greetings All!  Happy Monday!  I'm thrilled to be here again with the smashingly fabulous Design Team at Smeared Ink.  I'm thrilled to be a Guest Designer for the month and am playing along in their new challenge "Red Hot Love".  Interpret it your way and make it your own!  And come and share it here

For my card today, I've used one of my favorite SI sentiments "card goddess" stamped in black Colorbox ink and heat set.  I cut it out using an MFT Die-namic and added some red zig zag stitching just under the sentiment to separate it from the next die cut layer and pleated, stitched seam-binding.  I intentionally left the red thread tails showing for a bit of a messier, scrappier look.  (love)

I used some Ouchless Cardboard, torn with my hands and then coated using my Ranger Acrylic paint dabber in white.  I kept my background simple.  Papers from MME, SU!, Recollections.  The corners are anchored with basic silver brads.

Thanks SO much for popping by today!  I hope you'll come join us for this super hot challenge!

Crafty Hugs!
Meredith
