CD Sunday - Simply Red

Good evening -  & it is time for another CD Sunday Challenge - where the theme this weekend is "Simply Red".

I had to do quite a bit of searching for this one, as I new I wouldn't be able to print out anything with too much red in it.  It is also very difficult to get reds to match.  Anyway I found what I wanted to use in - My Craft Studio CD - "Festive Disco Follies" & used the NSR (No Stamp Required) section.

Here is my card - "Lady in Red";

The scalloped edge card does look a little orangey here but it is red & my Poppy Promarker was virtually identical.  The elegant lady is called Dorial & her companion is Cordelia.  I coloured with Promarkers & to the small images added glitter around the hat & a little on the pom pom too.  For the elegant lady I stamped her twice onto white card & coloured both of the images. Then from one I cut out the top layer of the dress including the wrap, remembering to remove the little triangle at her bent arm, & placed it on sticky pads over the other image.  I trimmed the various elements with some scalloped edge scissors to mimic the card.  The main image also has glitter on the wrap & the brim of her hat.  Before attaching the images I wrapped some white satin ribbon down the left-hand edge & added red flat backed pearls.

Thank you for stopping by my little blog I hope you will call again.  I am off now to link my card to the challenge blog.  Do go & take a look at what everyone does - there are always the most fantastic cards to look at & gain  inspiration from.
