Red, Black and White - Come and Get It Challenge

The Come and Get it Challenge with week was to create a card only using the colours red, white and black. To create this simple card I choose to emboss my black card stock with a flower stamp from Stampendous in red. I layered several papers and added some bling to enhance the red flowers.

It has been awhile since I have used my embossing powders and I have been thinking I should use them a little more often.

Be creative.
