See It, Do it, Make it RED!

This card was inspired by a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
Then I saw a card made by Mynnette Kitchen at Inkspirationals.
So with both the sketch and the inspiration in mind I came up with my own version of a card.

I started by using the Apothacary Framelits largest die to create the bottom edge on the card.  Then I folded the CS in half.  Next using the same die I cut out the red backing and then the white front piece. To make the white piece I die cut it twice but the second time I moved the die over to remove about 1/4" of the overall piece.  The remaining red section was used on the bottom of the card.  I secured it to the inside front of the card.
Next the filigree from Bliss was used to stamp the centre image.  Securing my triple bow to the front and securing it in the back with snail and tape. 
I then die cut 3 sets of butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Sizzlet.  I like to use 3 together to give a 3D effect to the butterflies.  The body was accented with my usual pearls and wire.  I also used some of the other left over butterflies on the inside of the card as well.

Once I had the card made I went looking for another challenge that utilized the colour "Red". Found this one, Ooh-La-La-Creations, another new site to check out each week.

I hope you like what I have come up with.

Thanks for stopping by.
