Black white and red

Good morning Bloggers, well I have been up most of the night the wind has been howling all night, hence why I am up at such and early hour.

here is today's card.

This is a 6x6" card, I matted it with some more white card, I cut out four Spellbinder flourish trims in black, I then cut our four corners from Spellbinders Gold Corner sets one in red, and the centre of a Marianne design doily centre's in red twice. I cut a piece of black card to measure 2 and half inches and a piece of white just slightly smaller, I lay the four trims around the sides then put in the square layered on top of each other, put the corners on then the centre, hope you like today's card.
I have entered this card into the following challenges.

Stately Circles

Hi Todays Card

I folded a A4 card in half from top to bottom to make this card, I cut a peice of Lilac pearl card and cut it half " smaller than the card, I then cut another piece of white card and cut it half " smaller again, I embossed the white card layer with the Spellbinder Awesome blooms embossing folder & layered them up, I took a piece of Lilac ribbon and wrapped it around the two layers before I stuck them to the card. I then cut three of the second largest of the spellbinder statley circles out of Lilac centura pearl card, I cut the center piece out with with the Lilac pearl card and the smaaler one with white card, and stamped the greeting and heat embossed it with black glitter embossing powder., I layered the circles and slider and glued then to the card, I cut two of the spellbinders Fantastic Flourish corners and cut them down to fit what I needed. and that was all I done with todays card.
hope you are all well and see you again soon.
