Redwork inspired

I made this card for a Greeting Farm challenge called, Redwork inspired.  Redwork is a style of embroidery that started in 19th century Europe.  Essentially it is embroidery done on white cloth with red floss.  For this card, I stamped Ian with Versamark and embossed him in red.  I did faux stitching around the red frame and embossed the white backgroundwith conversation hearts.  The large white space on this card reminds me of a work of embroidery.  I added three gingham buttons and white satin ribbon, which add to the fiber feel of the card.  I really like the simplicity of this look.
