What's black & white with a dash of red?

Hi Lovelies,


My card for today of course ;o).  I made this for the latest Simon Says Stamp challenge.  It's to use Black/white with a splash of colour.  I have so much trouble with this sort of challenge, I tend to get the colour mix wrong.  Usually with too much of one colour so it looks unbalanced.  I'm not sure about this card, but I do know it's the best one yet for this sort of challenge.  I think having the b/g stamped & using a stamp with a lot of detail helps.  I decided to use Red as my splash of colour.  I know that this is a go to combination for me.

Well that's it for me today.  I'm off to wrangle the snakes kids, have a quick shower (it's stinking hot already at 8am), take said snakes kids to the library, have a quick stop at Daisy Chains & then onto the shops for baby wipes (for my stamps ;D).

LOVE it Paula! You have just a great balance of the red. I also like the background envelope pattern

You've got the balance thing down, Paula! This looks quite elegant with this classic color combo - even good for a guy. Love it. I'm not sure where you are, but I wouldn't mind some heat......brrrrrr!
