Mixed Bouquet - Ruby Wedding

This is a Ruby Wedding Anniversary card made for a relative this evening, primarily using Stampin' Up! products. I wanted to try the Mixed Bouquet set with a completely different colour scheme (contrast the pumpkin and green samples in previous posts) and also with a different technique; I've stamped and cut out the images here, as contrasted with the One Sheet Wonder and background stamping used on previous cards.

The patterned background paper was a scrap I found on my desk. The card itself was made from half a sheet of Rose Red cardstock and the scalloped mount was cut from Creamy Caramel cardstock. I've used Watercolour Wonder Crayons to colour the image; I can't use these crayons enough! They're brilliant.

The card also follows the Splitcoaststampers Sketch Challenge layout number 161 (click here to see the SCS gallery and the other SC161 cards):-
