A bit of Red!!!!

Well after cleaning up my PC is now looks like its back behaving but we will wait and see.
So todays card is using the sketch for the Sugar Bowl but I think I may have overdone the red. It was Ok till I put on the red flowers supposedly to match the ones in the image.
The image is one of Sugar Nellies Home grown ones but its still a bit of an oldie.
I was left with one square of paper and rather than waste it I followed this week Mojo sketch which gave me the opportunity to use my new Memory Box butterfly. Looking at it now I reckon I need a sentiment in the top left hand corner.

Well i LOVE the red... and with the purple, it reminds me of the Red Hats and the Jenny Joseph poem... Warning. "When I grow old, I will wear purple, with a red hat, which doesn't go..."

Fab card hon..
Big hugs

Love the old SN stamps as much as the new ones, gorgeous papers. You're right a sentiment will finish off that bottom card perfectly.

I like the card and the red really pops out nicely. I think the other card is nice left as it is and then can be used for any occasion.

One thing I would like to touch upon is that weight loss program fast can be achieved by the right diet and exercise. A person's size not merely affects appearance, but also the overall quality of life. Self-esteem, depression, health risks, and physical skills are affected in weight gain. It is possible to do everything right whilst still having a gain. If this happens, a medical problem may be the culprit. While too much food rather than enough exercise are usually to blame, common medical ailments and widely used prescriptions can greatly enhance size. Many thanks for your post here.
