This picture doesn’t show the colors well, but the background of the card is brown, even though the picture almost shows it as a purple shade. Trust me, it looks fine with the red in person :). I like small doilies, because they add a nice touch to a project without any fussing. All this card took was paper, a 4″ doily, 2 flowers secured together with a red metallic heart brad, and red ribbon. Simple, with a cheerful splash of color!
