I'm off out tomorrow with lots of Red Hatters, it's Queen Cass's birthday lunch at Prezzo's in Brentwood. Each Red Hat chapter has a Queen, Queen Mum or a First Lady. I didn't want to make anything in red and purple, so I decided on using black,white and a red embellishment and acetate as an overlay with the greeting embossed. The flowers I bought back from the US as they were so reasonably priced. I took this picture very early in the morning and you can see part of my reflection at the bottom.

Fab card! I always like monotone cards & the flower really adds to it & jumps out at you. Simple but very effective. I'm sure Queen Cass will love it! x
