Red white and birthdays


The challenge this week over at Corrosive Challenges is to make something red and white. We have another two wonderful sponsors for you this month; Whimsie Doodles and Tiddly Inks, and today I've used an image and sentiment from Whimsie Doodles.
Here are the challenges I'd like to enter: (Please note, some of them have flower themes this week. I know this card doesn't use as many flowers as some, but, for me, this is a LOT. I struggle with adding flowers for some reason. So, as well as the large embellishment, I've given the image a little white flower brooch, and emboosed the red paper with daisies. And obviously the dress and hat in the image both have flowers.)
