Red Dress birthday

A nicely curvacious woman celebrating her birthday.  Because I wanted the red dress to stand out I chose orange (next on the colour wheel) and green (opposite on the colour wheel).  I added some cherry lipstick to this digi image.  I like using both kinds of embossing, but really dry embossing adds a lot of texture, and I usually use more than one on a card.

Image stamp:  Marianne- Snoesjes, coloured with Reno pens.

The red dress is a standout! I also like the flower in the middle of the circle sentiment - and I agree about dry embossing! Thanks for coming to the Eureka Stamps anything goes challenge this week.
