Guylou's Inimitability's Red Challenge!

Hi you all had a chance to go and check out Guylou's Ininimitability's Anything Goes Challenge. The DT supplied some fantastic creations to inspire us, and there were some totally awesome entries!

But tonight starts a brand new challenge...the Red Challenge, and Guylou has supplied all of her Design Team with an incredible brand new image called....Cupid! This is not your ordinary cutsy cupid....oh no...this is a full fledged grown up female cupid that would be wonderful for a card for your favorite guy or gal! And lucky me (squeel here), I get to be the GDT (Guest Designer) for this fabulous challenge! When I first saw her I knew that I had to do something special with her. So I scoured the internet for an idea of what to do with her. And this is what I came up with.
This layout is what's called a Pendulum card and you can find the tutorial for it here. She swings back and forth to make sure she hits her target. I colored her with metallic red and glitter gold...and used Stickles on her wings. The heart is from Happi Scrappin Doodles and can be found here. The pp behind my cupid is from my Grafico and can be found here.

  Now it's your turn to join in the fun.You can find the challenge and it's rules at Guylou's Challenge blog here. We would love for you to come join us and show us what you got! You can enter with any card or project that has red… but you get more entries if you use one of Guylou’s images.  If you don't own a Guylou's image you can get one at her store here or join her amazing blog group and she will give you a freebie. In fact, she has a fabulous one that she just gave to her group for reaching 300 followers. So there's really no reason not to join in the fun!  The prize is any image from Guylou's store and a Guest spot on her Design could you not want to join in on that! Come on over and check out what her incredibly talented Design Team has in store for you. You will not be disappointed! Be sure to add the link to your entry and not your whole blog (I forgot to do this...oops) as this makes it much easier on the team to find your creations.
 Hope to see you all there!
