Red, Yellow, Black and White

These are the required colours for the current Colour Create challenge. I must admit that I would never normally choose this combination of colours for a project, however it looks better than I thought it would.The optional extra is Flowers and Checks.
This is a quick card as I am in the middle of decorating a bedroom and should be getting on with it and not making cards! I've got some time off work so trying to catch up with a few jobs around the house, but keep getting sidetracked by crafting.

All cardstock came from my stash. The tag was stamped in red with a Crafty Individuals stamp and the black image is by Rubber Stampede. Red card was embossed with the Script cuttlebug folder and matted behind the tag. The black panel was punched with a MS doily punch and I added a checked ribbon. The final touch was a die cut flower and sentiment by Hero Arts.
Must get back to my paintbrush now.
