A Touch of Red

The challenge over at Less Is More this week is to use a touch of red. Being on a roll with these circle shaped scallop cards I decided to make another one. I have made another rose from ribbon for this card but this time used a different technique which gives a much fuller rose. I think it looks so lush and rich in red! This card could quite esily be adapted for a Ruby Anniversary or other special occasion.
