Red and Turquoise

I love red and I have been using this color a lot lately. But I've never used it with turquoise. Seeing the photo over at Sketchy Colors I decided to give it a go. But I didn't have any other plan.
I rummaged through my enormous stash of DPs and found two from Kaisercraft I thought could be a good starting point. I like the reddish colors of the bricks and the worn wodden look. I heat embossed the birthday sentiment directly onto the DP and framed it with a red cut out made with a die from Marianne. I had these flowers from Prima in my stash, and I also found some red lace and blue tulle. I felt it lacked something so added a die cut for leaves and flowers using a Memory Box die. I covered it with frantage and red pearls.To avoid the opposite corner being too empty I added three sequins.

I'd like to enter this card in these challenges:
1) Sketchy Colors - #240 Colors
2) Allsorts - Lace and Pearls
3) Crazy 4 Challenges - Opposites (colors)

Pia, Thanks for your visit & sweet comment. I popped over to enjoy your work, and I'm thrilled with the red (which is also my favorite color) combo with the turquoise. It's very stunning & love the way you've placed the brilliant red die over the wooden & brick dp. The gorgeous color of those flowers was just amazing combined with the red. Became your newest follower and hope you'll find time to visit me when you can too. TFS & Hugs.
