This card was made for today's color challenge hosted by Betty to use black, old olive, and real red! Thanks for the awesome colors Betty! I incorporated this week's Mojo 84 sketch and CAS12 (to use ribbon scraps). I always seem to cut my ribbon too long and have leftover scraps.
I used SU Bella Blossoms (one of my very favorite sets) and stamped it in real red. The flower is layered and pearls were added to the middle. The sentiment is from Verve's Wishful Elegance. The brass spiral clips were actually brass ornament hangers that I bought on clearance at Target after Christmas for $1 for 36 in a pack! I cut off the spiral. The dp is is Stampin Up Holiday Treasures. The leaves in the background matched the theme of the stamp. My daughter saw me making this card and wants me to save it for her for her birthday in June! I just may since she loves red and then that would be one card checked off my list! Lol!
