A little something in Red.

When I made this card (card's really as I made three) there were so many challenges for Red/red & black/red, white and black...of course I've missed most of them. Just wasn't well enough to post at the time. Still hoping to find a few red's left. It's another of the funky fold cards. All three are some kind of variation on the theme...I needed them all at once, isn't it always the way eh!!.  My images are all from Card Mad Fairy and felt they looked really dramatic left in black and white. I even decorated the inside of the cards, though only got scan of the first one. 

I'd like to show you the photo's I took with my new camera, but since my laptop was taken away and 'fixed' I haven't been able to put any software on it. Can't upload from camera, no photoshop....no wireless printer......he fixed it good and proper didn't he. grrrrrrrrrrrr. 

Receipe...
Cardstock - 12 x 12 stash.
DP's - Papermania Persimmon Collection.
Die cuts - ditto
Flowers - ebay and inked edges in black acetate pen

Wow, these really are dramatic. I'm sure the recipients will love them. It's so nice of you to do another give-away. I'm actually compiling candy for having over 100 followers. I just have to do it a little at a time. Hugs, dj
