A Touch of Red

I loved this challenge from Less is More. A touch of red - fab. And loads of white space too - love that. Oh boy! It was hard to stop at just colouring the flowers red .... I so wanted to touch up the lips with red too but feared that it'd be that one step too far if I did.


I thought it'd be a good idea to photo this card against a red background so that the red on the card would 'ping' - not so sure now. Although it doesn't show too well, the image has a bit of sparkle added to it too. Anyway, I'm posting this at night so that maybe I'll get a chance to view and comment on a few of the entries this week. Life has been so hectic recently and crafter's block has hit again, so it's been difficult to come up with anything presentable. However......I'm looking forward to feedback so please let me know what you think (especially how this could be improved).
Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx

Everything works very well on your card, it is gorgeous.

I would have coloured those lips and if you don't mind me saying i would have moved up the sentiment a little bit, but that's me:-)

This is a great card, don't put yourself down! I think she would look rather sassy with red lips too. Love Sheila x
