Rose Red / Smokey Shadow

A few weeks ago on Split Coast Stampers, the Clean and Simple Challenge was a sketch. You can see the gallery of cards people made using the sketch here. I didn't make a card for the challenge that week, but I haven't been able to get those circles out of my head!!! I've been wanting to do a combination of rose red and grey for a while, too. Yesterday it hit me how to combine the circles and the colors. It took me a while to get it executed the way I wanted, but I'm happy with how this turned out. A little different style than something I might typically make but I had fun. The digiment is the "Challenge Digiment" for this week. You can download this digiment for free, make a card or project using it, and by linking it back to the Digiments Blog, you'll have a chance to win ALL of the June Digiments. I have been working with the new releases coming out in June, and I can't wait for you all to see them! Michelle has really created some great Digiments to work with. And next month there will be 30 released!!! You can buy individuals for $1.00, or get the whole release for $20.00. Talk about affordability!!! I love that these are fun, practical, and still affordable! Be sure to play along if you can.

Great use of the color combo challenge using the digiment as the focal point. I need to start making more CAS cards - will help cut down on the amount of time I spend on each card - LOL! Love the layout as well.
