All Occasion Card Using DS4J Tulip Basket and Anna Griffin New Embossing folders/dies

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is staying warm and healthy.  I can't believe the cold weather that hit the US East coast and most of US.  Wow!  The volume of snow is unbelievable!  I am glad I don't have to deal with it.  I hated being iced in when I lived in MO.  Hopefully spring will come soon for all of you.

It is time for another DS4J Challenge 110 - Embossing/Use Red.  This one was a challenge for me; as I rarely use anything red on my cards.  I am a purple/pink person.  I used CTMH Ruby and it looks more pink in the pictures; but it is red.  I decided to add a pink bling to the flower.  It just felt like the right combination.  

I chose DS4J Tulip Basket to create my card.  It is a beautiful image and seemed to fit perfectly with embossing and red.  Be sure to check out all the other fabulous DT creations.This challenge will end March 31st; so be sure to get started on your creation right away.  Don't forget to use embossing and red on your creation.  Visit the DS4J shop where you can find a lot of wonderful digis to create with.
