Morning, hope you are well and enjoying your weekend.

Today's card is rather, err, red, yep, it's definitely red.  This was all down to the flower.  The flower is from the Amy Butler line for K & Co and is the "Lotus Floral" stamp set.  When I first got this set I stamped this image out loads of times and coloured them in using different Pro Markers and this red one was definitely my favourite.  I matted this onto some green cardstock that I had in my stash and put in my embellishment box...

.  ... and there it sat, all alone in all it's rich red loveliness until I re-discovered it a couple of days ago, so I had to rescue it and this is the result.

I used "Poppy Parade" cardstock, (Cat Ref: 121694, Pg 81), for the card blank and stamped the "En Francais" background stamp, (Cat Ref: 109521, Pg 61),  in Versamark ink, (Cat Ref: 102283, Pg 103) and heat embossed using clear embossing powder.

I love this background stamp and I think it goes really well with this colour palette.

I'm so happy I was able to save this poor little embellishment from the box, I've no idea when I am going to use the card, hense why I've left the sentiment off, but I'm sure the right occasion will present itself!

Thanks for dropping by, chat again soon  :o)
