If there's one colour I don't scrap or use a whole lot it's red. Somehow the truly bold colours aren't my thing -- and they tend to be left behind in my stash. I've had this checkered ribbon lying around for a long time now...not to mention a whole pack of red raindrops -- just waiting for the chance to be used and seen. But instead I reached for the other colours.
Then I ran out of plain pink(s) cardstock...
I had already dry embossed the flowers on the left-side...and I'd pasted on the pinkish background paper, so I was kind of stuck! Just for kicks I reached for the red checkered ribbon -- and realized it looked great! Add some red paper highlights, some red embossing powder...and finally open the red dew drops and wah-lah!!! A red card I didn't know I had in me to create!!! LOL
I guess sometimes bold and flashy isn't such a bad thing -- and I can even say in all honesty -- I like it! :) TFL
