Definitely a Different Colour!

Hello, well, I've been determined not to use the same colours again! and wanted to enter a couple of challenges, and this is where I ended up! Not very springlike colours, but maybe that's because we're not having very springlike weather. I've always found red to be a nice, warm, comforting colour, so maybe that's it. Anyway, I'm going to enter this one in two challenges, Lili's Little Fairies -Diamonds and Pearls, and Totally Gorjuss - Bling!
Printed image, Maisie, from Lili of the Valley, I just love her, onto card, and coloured with promarkers. Cut shape with Nestie, and larger mat in rainbow shimmer card, then larger still in white again. Matted all together. Cut a border from embossed cardstock, punched the edges, double on one side, and attached two different ribbons. Used two different backing papers, red dotty and red tartan, and matted everything together. Made flower from, I think it's an x-cut die, and flourishes are from a Marianne flower die. Stamped and decorated sentiment, and finished with twinkles, stickles, ribbon, "diamonds and pearls." x
