A TOUCH OF RED AT LESS IS MORE


Hi peeps, hope you are well and happy and enjoying beautiful Spring weather (although it's actually raining here today)! 
Another short post and another CAS card for Chrissi and Mandi's very addictive (in a good way!) Less Is More Challenge.  It's week 9, and A Touch of Red is required.  
I still get that "oooh something's missing" feeling when I am left with so much empty space though!!
************
Recipe: - 
Cinnabar stamp - Stampington (I really must buy some new stamps - it's so tempting to keep using the old favourites). 
Bliss stamp - SU
Distress Ink - Fired Brick
Versafine Ink - Onyx Black
Teeny red gem on the headdress flower.
****
I would also like to enter my card into the following challenge:-
Gingersnap Creations - "Geishas"
********
Have a happy week everyone ~
