Red and brown, a new colour combo

Yes I know, red and brown isn't a new colour combo, but I think it's the first time I use them for a card. Isn't it funny that you can feel very bold when using new colours for a card. Some people try scuba diving or hang gliding...well I'm not that bold, hehe.

Stamps: Magnolia
Colouring: Derwent watercolour pens
Decor papers: small pieces from my scrap folder
Tools: MS border punch
Accessories: bling pearls are K&C, Distress Inks for distressing
Flowers (attached to each other with floral stem tape), satin heart and ribbon are from my stash.

A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge: Fall colours
Cupcake Craft Challenges: A fab sketch by Lovely Liza
Moving Along With The Times: Christmas
Sir Stampalot Challenge: All distressed
The ABC Challenge: D is for distressing
