What is Black and White with a touch of Red?

Answer:  The colors I chose for this wonderful digital image from Sassy Studio Design.

This was a lot of fun to color.  I sometimes struggle with red bleeding outside the lines but I actually did pretty good on this one. 
This sweet little sexy thing would be perfect for a friend card, Anniversary, Birthday, Thinking of you, just about anything

I added some of my new favorite embellishments, punched and molded flowers,  in Red, Black and white.  A few MS punches ferny leaves and pearls add a variety of textures to this "Hi" card.
The sentiment is a punched label with a white piece on top at an angle and sponged with Black soot, Tim Holtz, distress ink used for sponging on sentiment and main image.

I am going to guarantee you that unless the housekeeping elves show up at my house, I will not be posting for a couple of days.  I have lots to do to get ready for Christmas at my house next week-end.  Weather permitting all of my children and grandchildren will be here, I don't really remember the last time that everyone got to be here at the same time and I still have to finish my Christmas shopping EEKKKKK.

Hope you liked my card and if you are busy with Christmas preparations as well, relax and enjoy it as much as you can,  see you again soon!
