Dramatic Sweetpea


Evening ladies,Gents,friends,guests and followers,
hope i got everyone,today I made a card for 2 challenges which will be at the bottom of this post if anyone is interested in joining any of them.


For todays card I used Red Hearts from sweetpea I am just loving these stamps at the moment.This is the first time that I have coloured any of my stamps or images hair black so would love it if you could let me know what you think.The red background has been stamped and ebossed in clear ink and powder using a small swirl stamp to give a slight suble look and so the card wasn't left plain I think you might just be able to see it(I hope so).
The sketch I have used is from the Sweetpea Stampers challenge and quite a good one I think nice and simple.
The challenges I am entering this card into are:

Cupcake Crafts-3 papers,3 flowers,3 ribbons(i got 4)

Thankyou all so much for taking a look at my card I really appriciate it and if you have time I love to read all of your lovely comments too.
Hugs
Lorraine xx
