The Rainbow continues - Red & Blue

This morning I woke up at 3:30am.  I don't know why I keep doing that.  Maybe just too much on my mind.  So my therapy was to head to my craft room and do the next color for the Rainbow Swap...this time it's RED.  I really like the way this card came out.  Usually I think there is something more I could do - but not with this one.  Maybe it was hour.  Maybe it's that I'm finding my "style" and becoming happy with it....I don't know.  Do you have a "style"?  Ok, so on to the card:

The image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.  It's another set that I loved and bought - then never used.  The flower and the sentiment are both part of that set.  I also used another sentiment from that set for the inside of the card.  I colored it using my BIC markers.  No, I've never given in to the Copic temptation.  The papers are from two pads I've had for quite some time.  The center of the flowers are gems - just clear ones. 

It's now almost 11pm and I have finished Blue!  Again, I used an image from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps - not only the image and outside sentiment, but also the inside too.  I colored the dress with a colored pencil.  Recently I took all my ribbon off the spools so I can't tell you who made the ribbon...and the paper was from 2 different paper pads that are several years old.  I know I'm not saying much, but honestly I'm really tired right now and my eyes are even hurting because I want to go to bed. LOL!!!  But I wanted to share this card with you.  I did also finish brown, but I'll post that in the morning...just too tired to take the picture right now.  Have a great evening!!!  And sweet dreams!

I'm always a fan of red...and poppies. BTW, thanks for posting a challenge in the TUIC thread. I am still thinking about what I might use...that is unused!
