A Week of LOVE - Challenge Day 2

The challenge for today is to use this sketch and the color red somewhere on the card.

Here's my card :

Colors : Holiday Red, Twilight, Crystal Blue, Garden Green, Chocolate, Orchard Bouquet, Vanilla Cream, Col White

Papers : Floral Tapestry

Stamps : Love Is, Friendship Flowers (stems)

Accents : Chocolate satin ribbon

This card came out nothing like I was going to make it with the exception of the sketch placement, lol. I stamped my hearts, cut them out, and I WAS trying to make an artful bunch of lined up hearts or something to go in the rectangle spot. But the hearts wouldn't have that and they kept foiling my attempts over and over. Finally I gave up and decided to just toy with them while thinking and suddenly the light came on and the heart/flower thingy was born lol. I actually like this a lot better than what I had going on in my head ^_~.

*Edit* Soooo.... my hubby tells me my heart/flower thingy looks nothing like a flower, lol. I thought it did for the most part when I was making it but now that I look at it I think he's right. Oh well, my creative moment turned out not as creative as I thought, lol. I did want to use a bella originally with this sketch but thought I give this a try ^_~ And though my dear hubby gave my card the uh-do-I-hafta-answer look when I asked him about the heart/flowers (he never does this to my art!), he did say they looked like the halves of some butterflies, so a new idea was born!
