simply Less is More #9 - a touch of Red

Head over to simply Less is More this week for the "A Touch of Red Challenge"Mandi and Chrissie have created inspiring samples plus a few tips. Been busy this week but this challenge is in my to-do list; sounds tragic, I know!


Ok, here's my creation this week:



It's a tri-fold card with the heart (Stampin Up Always) in the middle, with just a touch of red (surrounds, and focus flower), I was going to put the sentiment on the front but it just didn't look right - yes, I had to re-do the front heart.  The Happy Anniversary sentiment (SU Teeny Tiny Sentimentsseems better inside (directly behind the front heart); I masked that area when I stamped the heart first. After stamping the sentiment, I sponged it a little with red to highlight it a bit more as it was rather teeny tiny and the background a bit busy.


inks: SU Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler (really love this deep red)


Anniversary's not till October so call me super-organised. :-)


Now to go visiting the others. I honestly don't know how Mandi and Chrissie get around to everyone. I'm happy if I can do 10.  


So Mandi, Chrissie and all you wonderful ladies who make wonderfully CAS cards, go visiting and leave comments, all I can say is:


You are amazing and Thank you.
