Creative Inspirations Challenge - Red and Black

It has been two weeks, so it's time for another fun challenge at Creative Inspirations Challenge Blog. Today, we are asking you to make a project with the colors red and black. For my card, I used the Princess of the Orient image from Sassy Studio Designs. I colored her with copics and framed her with my new Spellbinders Labels 3. For the 2 narrow panels on the left, I used Tattered Angels in black gold and one of their screens as a resist to make the scrolly pattern. I also used Tattered Angels on my rose that I made using Tim Holtz Grunge paper and nestabilities blossom set. I used the sketch from Get Sketchy.

So here are the challenges for this card:
Creative Inspirations - Red and Black
Flourishes - Frame it
Allsorts - Distressed with a button and bow
Simon Says Challenge - Picture inspiration (of a rose)
Get Sketchy - sketch
Cuttlebug challenge - Glimmer mist with a mask
ABC Challenge - "n" New - new Spellbinders - plus this is a Chinese New Year's Card
