Are you reddy?

Morning all (just!)

I hope you are all well and happy - just a little thankyou for all the comments you have been leaving - I really do appreciate them!

Phew! Well the last two days have been a little hectic getting both of these DT posts out - but now I think I'm happy with the process I can relax and enjoy them!

I've got a card to share with you today that was generated last night - I has bought a new set of chocolate baroque stamps - I couldn't believe the service - it was amazing - anyway here's what I did with them:

Its my friend's 40th birthday coming up so I thought it would be a good idea to make a card for her whilst I was having a play! I've used distress inks (barn door and fired brick) to make the background then stamped with the chocolate baroque stamps around the edge. I used a skecth by Cordine over at the Sketchy Challenges then added the black paper. The red papers were then stamped on again and finally I made the tag using pan pastels then distressed the edges with black soot after atamping. Added the flowers and the gems!

I hope my friend likes it!

I'd like to put this card into the following challenges:
The sketchy challenges: Cordines Sketch
Sunday Stamper: Red
Sundays with Crissy: things with wings
Anything goes challenge blog: Things with wings
Hopefully see you soon!
