Do you love wearing red?

For many years I didn't think I could wear Red..
so avoided it like the plague..
Until we were planning our wedding, my plans changed from teal and brown when I could not find that perfect dress..
Trying on a dress that had red on it to try the style rather than the colour,…. Until my (now husband) said THAT is YOUR dress… Hmmmm complete change of plans and I had this dress that had a huge amount of red.

so I love flowers as you can see if the wedding photo the flowers are red.... so when I saw these Penny Black flowers I just knew what colour they were going to be, although I’m not sure what type of flowers they are I just new I wanted to colour them red… I have coloured them with distress inks and and liquid pearls so they glimmer.

The butterfly is a CC designs die and added some twine and a mini shell button, The papers are new Echo Park papers white we have at Penrith Crafts, I just love this paper so versatile, I have used aged mahogany distress to colour a portion of the print, the reverse of the print paper is for the butterfly. The paper is the same paper as I used for the card I made on
this post here.
Finished off with the Twine and a Hi There sentiment.
A few challenges for me to play today! and I doooo love challenges they are very inspiring the DT’s and the players.. Thank you one and all!

Ok off to work! see you later have a Great Day everyone :0)
