Seeing Red

On my newest card, that is!  Squigglefly has a new challenge this week, and it is to get out those red markers, watercolors, crayons, pencils and ink.  Show me the RED!!
So I hope I didn't go too much overboard on the red here, especially on the flower spray.  I just loved coloring the new Squigglefly February release stamp, "Hold On To Me", by Lynne Stansbery!  And after 35 years of loving the same man, I thought it would be the perfect image for his Valentine card.  Of course, I have made him at least four Valentine cards so far!!!  Just can't stop it LOL
Anyway, I used Copics for the coloring then attached it to some leftover DCWV patterned paper with dimensional tape for, well, DIMENSION!  Flourish and leaf diecuts are behind the flowers.  The largest one was made by my crafting friend Shannon, whose ETsy shop offers more of the same.  The other three are leftover from a Michael's purchase when the store closed its doors (boohoo, no more shopping sprees there!).
All placed on red cardstock and my 6x6 Valentine's Day card is complete, along with the outside sentiment:  "to have and to hold", and the inside sentiment:  "hand in hand, forever and always".
I think hubby will get the message, don't you?
So noe it's your turn to play in the challenge!  If you still don't have a Squigglefly image, grab a freebie HERE and think RED.  I'd love to see what you come up with!
Happy crafting!
