Mr & Mrs Foxglove

We have a lovely bright day here in London but it is very cold - to be expected seeing as its midway thru October!  Today's card is the first I have made using these fabulous Whiff of Joy rubber stamps I won recently - they are such good quality so I would say to anyone thinking of purchasing them to go ahead.
Using Mr & Mrs Foxglove, I stamped them on to Rymans' Smooth Card and coloured them with my good old PMs, layered the image onto red card and stuck it down onto fabuloud dark green leather-look textured paper.  I used a contrast striped paper in both horizontal and vertical to make the shapes fro the right-hand side and put them thru my Dotty Papermania Embossing Folder, mounted them onto green and red card and stuck down.  The flowers are made from the same card using Marianne's Florals and I stitched the middles with green thread in X shape.

I am using the new Editor thingy but not too sure about it - I suppose its like everything else that changes - nobody likes the new!!  When the Docrafts site changed there was uproar but it seems that most people have come to like it now after they made a few changes to suit members. 

This card is for two challenges ~ Ribbon Girl's Red & Green and Sketch Saturday.
