Monochromatic red for an order

Hello lovely bloggers,

Hope you are having a good weekend... My older one, Zeenya turns 13 tomorrow. Gosh, how I am holding on to her while she is this Miss Independent wanting her own life. What did I know that they grow up so quickly???????? Thank God Aleeza is still little and I will try and not be so shocked at her growing up quickly.

I have made this for a friend who wanted wedding cards with red in them. I am so into making white on white cards for weddings but she was not unduly taken in with that colour combo and insisted she wanted red hearts. So here is my card... I do so hope she likes it.

I have used red card stock, embossed it and layered pearly white and red paper on it with two hearts die cut with Sizzix minis. The hearts have been embossed and I went over them with my red Sakura pen. The double ribbon has been hand tied and the organza roses, crystals and ribbon with Happy Wedding sentiment is from my stash. 
Am going to submit this card for

Here is a random something I liked on Facebook so thought of sharing it with you all just like my friend Shirley-Anne does.

Much love,

What beautiful rich reds for your card Monica - I am sure your friend will be thrilled although like you I quite like white on white. It is hard when your children seem to grow up so quickly.

This is a beautiful card all the embossing. Happy Birthday to your daughter. Yes, they age too quickly. Melissa has only one week of year 11 so we are heading towards a big year next year. I am sure you will still have lots of special time with Miss Independent..they always need their Mum.
