The House That Stamps Built Color Challenge

Good Morning Ladies,
I went out to my garden yesterday after the storm and lo and behold there was the first ripe tomato in my garden. I brought it in sliced it and ate it. It was so yummy! I am looking forward to more ripe tomatoes.
I was not well yesterday. So the most I did was sit and create. I created a card for The House That Stamps Built Color Challenge
You can visit the challenge by clicking here....
The challenge is a color challenge
Black and White and one other color.
Here is my entry....
 To create this card I started with a Repeat Impressions image. I colorized this with prisma pencil and gamsol. I then cut it using a spellbinder die set. I cut a second mat in red. Then I got to work on my black and white elements. I made flowers using a Cheery Lynn Designs die set. I cut two layers for each flower using black glitter card stock and white glitter card stock. I curled the petals and stacked  them adding a pearl for each center. I used a cheery lynn designs die to accent the flowers with a leafy swirl. Black and white floral dsp is the layer on top of my card base.
 A close-up of the flowers.
The leafy swirl.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
