Here is the card I have made for John. I couldn't decide between Resplendent Rectangles or Diamond Strips and Accents so I used them both - and being greedy I also snuck in a couple of little bits from Marvellous Squares too.

I find these front steppers extremely difficult to photograph because they come out looking totally out of proportion. The side view, which shows the inside, makes a better picture. The little swans are the centre part from a Nellie Snellen hearts die set. I know this is more burgundy than red but I liked it better for a man. And I even added a bow, though it's very small and very narrow ribbon! The fold back parts of the Diamond Strips and Accents are much darker in real life, in fact there is very little difference between that and the burgundy card stock. Who said the camera never lies?
Well we are off out to lunch with some friends. Whenever we lunch with this particular couple it generally lasts until about 7 o'clock! LOL!
Hope you all have a great day! Love and hugs from Christine x
