Red and Teal

 I love this colour combination.

Here is my card

This card started out quiet differently. Initially I left the topper as a full rectangle which, as I had run out of double sided tape, I adhered to the base with some silicone glue. I used this medium often a long time ago when I was making decoupage cards and it always worked well so I had no reason for concern. This time however the glue left greasy stains on the corners of the topper so I had to lift it and trim them off. I was left with this odd shape so I added some silver paper for definition and used an embossing folder to fill up the other side of the space and ended up with this. Not my best but my lesson was learnt!
