I made this card for Anne in Australia for a black and red ATC swap sponsored by Card Workshop.  Black and red is one of my favorite color combos – it’s so dramatic and sophisticated!  I knew from the start that I wanted to use this vintage rose image for the card – I distressed the edges to make it pop, and distressed the cardstock to tone down its brightness.  I was thrilled to receive the tiny buttons from my friend Elaine in time to incorporate them into this card – they add the perfect finishing touch!
