For Japan Redcross

Hello bloggers,

 I made this card a while back... in fact my ex - design conultant (the famous Zeenya, now infamous because she does not want to get anywhere close to art and craft since she has started chatting with her friends on Skype) coloured in this  Penny Black image some weeks ago.

I distressed the image as there were some tell tale stains on it.
The ribbons, embellies and sentiment are all from my stash.

And I have to share that this card sold yesterday... Yippeeeee! This lady in our complex bought five cards from me and she seemed to buy three which were red!!! So does that mean I must make more red cards?

I am going to submit this for the following challenges:

Love it! I have a lot of designer friends (and I'm sorta a designer too) and they used to be so poo-poo about things I made with "craft" supplies...but now they all want my cards! Yea arts & crafts! Sometimes modern designers forget that what they do started with people doing arts & crafts.
And congrats on selling your cards! Have you seen this red-themed sentiment freebie at TLC? http://createwithtlc-createwithtlc.blogspot.com/2011/02/happy-friday.html
