Happy Sunday!!!
 
Yes it is quite rare to see a post from me on a Sunday but I have all my cards done up for this week and I wanted to fit this one in for a challenge over at
Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog 
 The challenge is Shades of Reds so I couldn't help using the beautiful corsage I bought over at Christina's store. .

Sandy has even offered up a free digital to work with in case you want to participate and don't have any of her digitals.

Here is my card!
 

I used my new stamps I just received in the mail from Fresh Squeezed Stamps called "backgrounds" Enlarge photo to see the beautiful hat pin in the corsage which is perfect for a card and gift in one!

I made the background using spectrum Noir Pens and alcohol solution, isn't it gorgeous! You can make this background using any alcohol pens or alcohol ink, Christina over at Card Making Magic has a fantastic video tutorial!!! Click HERE to learn how to make a Spectrum Noir Background!

 
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft, Christina did such a lovely job putting them together on this gorgeous corsage which is also available for sale in her shop!
 

The scallop boarder , woodgrain strip and horizontal stripes are all stamps from Fresh Squeezed Stamps!
 
 I got to say two things on this card for this person I made the card is miles away and I miss her so much and she has just got a new job she has been waiting for !  This is the free balloon I got from Sandy's Designs, I water colored it to go with the distress look and covered in glossy accents which is not showing up.
 
I hope you join the challenge!!
Have a fabulous day!
