A Ruby Tuesday

Cricut Sweet Treats Cartridge Cupcake Swiss Dots Embossing
Happy Tuesday! Over at Die Cuttin' Diva's a new challenge started today - "Ruby Red".  And although I don't use Red very often, I did enjoy making this card.  I found some fun patterned paper in my stash that I thought would work great.  It is from a 6x6 Colorbok (Wal-Mart) paper pack, so it's a bit thinner but I put it on a heavier mat and it worked out great.  The layout is courtesy of Mojo Monday, so this will be entered in their weekly challenge as well.  I embossed the brown mat with Paper Studio's Quatrefoil folder, the cream mat was embossed with Swiss Dots.  The red mat is a shiny ruby red, but the camera doesn't capture it too well.  The last challenge I am entering this into is Use It Tuesday's Birthday challenge.  I cut the cute cupcake from Sweet Treats and embossed the cake with Divine Swirls.  I also used foam tape to pop the image up a bit.  Part of Use It Tuesday's challenge is to use hoarded crafting supplies, and I have to say I have had these two red buttons for over 2 years!  So today, I am using them - finally!  Hopefully you can join in on one of these three fun challenges!
