Red and Brown are Hot!

I've been sorting my scrap mountain and came across a piece of brown card just the right size to make a tent fold card.   Then there were the paper's left over from Lady in red the other day the reds and the brown look so right together.

The main image is Penny Black 'Youthful' coloured with Pro Markers and stamped onto white card.   The edges of the card have been coloured with Nick Bentock inks the greeting is also Penny black.

The red flowers are have wire stems and flat back pearl centers. Vellum leaf spray, organza bow recoloured with solvent pen.   Just a simple strip of brown lace along the bottom.

Have to enter this into this month's http://pennyblackatallsorts.blogspot.com/ where the theme is floral.

To save Brenda's eye's I'll enter it in Sir Stampalot as well they have a month of Anything goes.
