More in Red ...

Hi Everybody,

For those that like the darker colors and in particular red here is another card along the same lines.

Some of you have told me that you save the red for Valentines or Christmas themed cards but it is a color that can be used anytime for any occasion.

The sentiment on this card is from Crafters Companion and is one of the stamps in the Sheen Douglass range

It has been embossed in silver and decorated with the red flourishes from  Want2Scrap

This card has a red and crystal Hatpin pushed into the flowers and they are from   Wild Orchid Crafts

I have added the glitter from Glitter Magic to the petals just to add a little sparkle.

And as always it is much better in real life.



Thank You 

Some how in the wee small hours my followers have increased to 1006 and I am so grateful to each and every one of you for visiting my pages.  

It really does mean a lot to me that you visit and especially when you take the time to leave me your comments.

And this is why I have my regular "Give Aways" of either cards or goodies as my way of saying Thank You to all of you.

  4. Good morning Christina,
    Love, love, love the design of your stunning card.
    I am not a Red person but have used that background Die lots in other colour combinations.
    All organised, kits made up to do a "Workshop" on your Origami Box.
    The ladies have been on at me for ages to do this ....... a lot of work but I am sure it will go well.
    Have a wonderful day

  10. Oh, I just love the colour red, and this card shows how to use it well. You are right, why should a colour be restricted to a couple of occasions only, especially one as bright as this.
    Cheers

  21. Good afternoon Christina,
    Another beautiful card that would make a beauty of a ruby wedding card, but as you say red is for all year round. I am really pleased that you have went over the 1000 mark of followers as you do make beautiful cards and are very generous in hints and tips that you have found out over the passage of time. I hope that your numbers continue to grow more in the time to come as there is a lot of people missing out on your talent,
    Love and crafty hugs
