A Touch of Red

Such a late post tonight because I’ve been playing with my new purchases from Stampin’ Up!  It’s like Christmas *girly hand clap*.  I have some lovely products that I’m so looking forward to using and making some lovely cards to show you.  It’s OK….I don’t mind doing thatWinking smile.
My latest card was inspired by my upliner, Victoria over on Blue Jelly Stampin’.  So much so I wanted to give it a go myself, so I’ve used it to enter the challenge over on “Less is More” – A Touch of Red.
I’ve used my newly acquired ‘Pick a Petal’ stamp set and to stamp a five petal flower in Real Red, using my new and ingenious Stamp-a-ma-jig to align the petals exactly how I wanted them (such a simple but brilliant gadget!!). 
I’ve trimmed the card with some of the red spotty paper from the Designer Series Pattern paper and added a greeting to finish it off. 
Now, I nearly added a gem or two….but couldn’t decide where to put them….so I left them off.  And I’m glad I did.  I don’t think it needs anymore.  Less is more, right?
All in all, I’m quite pleased with the result.  Let me know what you think Smile.
Thanks for reading,
