Color Me Scrappy Challenge #11

Look at the beautiful color combination for Challenge #11. It is so pretty! I love the deep red and the different shades of grey. 

The layout which I did is so new to me! I have never done a layered layout. I loved the result. It is very relaxing and fun. I love this photo of Anurag. So natural! We took this at a park in downtown Philadelphia. He was so happy and loved the place.

I used silhouette to cut out the title and the quote bubble. I had some red fabric net, I had bought about 4 years back and I added that to this layout to add some texture. I made the camera vellum envelope. The vellum paper is from Recollections Amy Tangerine Paper Pack. 

I had such a difficult time with the title though. I used red cardstock to make the title. Then didn't like it. Painted it blue. Then silver!! Then finally resorted to metallic grey, which I loved! I am happy with the overall look.

I would love to know what you think about this one! I think I am going to try and do more layered layouts. It is fun!  You have time until Sep 14th to finish this challenge. As usual there will be a prize!  Stop by Color Me Scrappy to check out the prize and see what rest of the designers made using these colors as inspiration!

This is so good Viji. You picked a wonderful photo for the colors. I think that camera vellum is so awesome too. :) I want to play along. Have to find time.
