Red And Black.

First of all, apologies for the lousy photo.  I took this picture early this morning and it has been an overcast day.
I had a request from a friend of mine for an engagement card, the stipulation....red and black.
Here is the result.
The base card is black with a layer of very vanilla.  The dp is from a pad of Kaisercraft called, I think, After Five.
I've use some cream pleated satin with a strip of black velvet ribbon along the bottom of the card.  The 'bouquet' has been arranged from the bottom up and involved lots of matte multi-medium.  Love this stuff...dries matt not shiny...excellent.  Thanks Linda for putting me on to this.
The greeting has been stamped in black with barn door distress ink sponged around it.  The frame is from Tattered Angels.
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
Hope everyone is well.
