Scrapbooking roulette!!

Here is my take on Vicki's awesome challenge for our May cyber crop over at scrapbooking top 50 this month with a casino based theme.

The cyber crop is ending at Midnight tonight. So you still have some time to get entries in. And make sure to join in our our current monthly challenges.

We will also have another cyber crop starting next month.

So the challenge was based on the game of roulette. You had to pick either red or black as the dominant colour for your layout. And also have a 3 embellishment cluster, with one odd embellishment in there.

I went with red as my dominant colour.
I created my background by placing some alphas on my page and the surrounding them with randomly placed odd alphas. I then coated them all in multiple coats of red acrylic paint.
In fact it nearly took me a whole page as I used some dark coloured glitter alphas which were hard to cover.
Anyway I like the background effect and will try it again some time.
I have a few embellishment clusters. But my vertical one on the right hand side of my page has 2 red and white spotted buttons and 1 odd embellishment- a crocheted flower.
