I'm Hosting the Colour Challenge at Just Us Girls

It's my turn to Host at Just Us Girls for Colour Week.
I chose Black Grey and Red.
And of course I chose 2 of my favourite stamps.
The background is from JustRite - London Background
inked with Memento London Fog.
My main image is from Stampin' Up Feeling Sentimental
heat embossed in red.
This stamp reminds me of my visit to London
and the phone booth is so very British.
I have used red cs as my base and also black and white.
The phone booth is popped with
distressed white and grey backgrounds.
I added a little red spritzing and a red gemstone.
The Hello from Lawn Fawn
has been cut in black white and red paper
and built up for added effect.
Finished off with 3 little strips of coloured ribbon.
Hope you like my choice of design and colours
and you get the chance to join us this week.
If you do you will be in the running for our
Chic of the Week and could be chosen for our
Guest Designer in October.
For all the details pop over to Our Blog
and also check out what The Jugheads
and our August Guest Karen Bourke have made.
You won't be disappointed.
Thanks so much for popping in.
