Red & Yellow Hello

I'm following the sketch at Dare U 2 Digi Stamp and using Fred She Said's free stamp. I colored it with my prisma markers and I'm quite proud of the pot's highlighting. :) The red/black paper came from Lindsay's Page Kit (it's the Black and White kit, but when printed on red paper you get red & black). I next chose a yellow scrap to use Paper Craft Planet's color challenge to use Red and Yellow. Then I hunted up a new sheet of plastic canvas since my youngest son cut up my scrap piece , to pierce the cardstock in a zig zag pattern. I took a red metalic gel pen and faux stitched the zig zags. The speckles at the top of the card is not suppose to be there. I need to clean the glitter off my scanner. I've seen the swiffer duster has been recommended as a good glitter catcher so I guess it will be my next "craft supply" purchase.
