White with a Hint???

Good morning. Just popping on with a quick post this morning before the all the family arrive for Sunday lunch - scrummy roast beef and all the trimmings - oh my tummy is rumbling already :o)

I had another request from my MiL yesterday to make another card for her friend's Grandson and taking inspiration from this week's challenge at Lil's Little Fairies this is what I came up with:

I just hope that my 'hint of red' isn't too much? 
 Card base is 8" x 8" - made from A3 Linen card from the Papermill
 And the main reason I went for a larger card was to use this fabulous pre-coloured topper from LOTV - perfect for when you need a card super fast :o)
 I embossed the square panels - made with the off cuts from the base card with Spellbinders M-Bossabilities 'So Trendy' and then lightly inked with Barn Door Distress Ink
Stars and aplhas die cut using Cricut Expression and George and Basic Shapes cartridge
Sentiment - LOTV

I hope both the sender and the recipient are happy with the end result :o)

Challenges I would like to enter:
Lil's Little Fairies - White with a Hint of Colour
Crafts 4 Eternity - When I Grow Up
Frosted Designs - Embossing 
Cute Card Thursday - Feature Letters/Numbers
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - Happy Birthday

Thanks for popping by today - your visit is really appreciated.
Hope you have a wonderful day.
