KWerner Color Challenge #41

These are such strong colours this week and my card ended up nothing like I had planned! I've used the wonderful Embrace Life set and decided on some black and white embossing. I softened it up with some red glitter and half pearls. The sentiment is from the level one hostess set For a Friend. I stamped it with Versamark, embossed with black EP and then coloured the words in with my white Gel Pen. Once I added the glitter I decided to run the gel pen around the edge to make it stand out more. The rest of it is pretty self explanatory. I really like it's simple elegance - but think these colours just lend themselves to elegance.
Please note - we don't have Riding Hood Red in Australia so I have used Real Red...
