Black and Red

Good Morning fellow bloggers! I hope you are all well:)
This is just going to be a short post today as I have got to go into town to buy a new fridge freezer:After 4 attempts at mending and lots of food wastage Mr Know How insurance man has finally said we are entitled to a new one under the conditions of the insurance we took out when we brought it:) Yay! finally :)
So my card today that I have chosen is this rather regal black and red card. I am also thinking that this card, with the sentiment removed would look lovely in a frame!  What do you think?

I have made the flower using Spellbinder Labels Twenty Four which is on my list of 'to do tutorials'.
Products Used:
  • Cardstock: Foundations
  • Stamps: Elegant Corners Labels Four Background, Vintage Oval Labels, Vintage Floral Labels
  • Dies: Fancy Framed Tags Two, Labels Twenty Two, Labels Twenty Four and Labels Four
  • Stickles Glitter: Diamond
  • Embossing Powder: Cosmic Shimmer Detail Black
  • Embellishments: Creative Expressions Black flat Pearls and clear Sparkler
Sorry it is short and sweet! Take care and enjoy the rest of your day:) x
