For this layout, I wanted to use black, red and white colors only. I used the Sentimentals Cricut Cartridge for the scallop circles on the page and then used a black gel pen to add faux stitching to the inside of the red and white and then a white gel pen to add faux stitching to the outside of the circles. I hand cut the background for the pictures out of red cardstock. The font is from the Jasmine Cartridge and the bird is from Home Decor. I added some faux stitching around the bird, a google eye, and pop dotted it.
