This week's "especially three" challenge here at Made Especially For You is all about using three colors. All you have to do is create a card using three colors (white or black may be used as an accent color) for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice from our sponsor, Verve Stamps!
I decided to keep it simple for this week's challenge and only use three colors without using white or black as an accent color. The colors I chose to use were red, black, and white, and what better image to go with this color combo than a lady bug?! Or in my case.. a love bug. :)
The adorable little love bug is cut from the Create a Critter cartridge at 2.75" I believe - I can never seem to remember what sizes my images are cut at since I always cut so many, I should really start making note! I used basic red, black, and white cardstock along with a bit of patterned paper from a Recollections paper pad. The ribbon is from my stash and I stamped the 'Love' sentiment in black ink and distressed the border a bit in red, although it's hard to tell in the picture but adds a nice touch when it can be seen properly. Not sure where the brads and the flower came from but they were in my stash as well. :)

Sorry to keep it short and sweet today, I've had to draft a LOT of posts these past few days and I think my fingers are about to fall off. Have a wonderful week!
