The red and grey look fantastic together the image has several grey tones which the check paper carries through, love your card Lorraine.

Great colour combo, it really makes the best of this super image. Lovely layout too, the gear wheels are perfect. Thanks for joining in at Cardz 4 Guyz

Kat W said...

Yep, that's another great colour combo and although I often use it for male cards, it is very unisex. It works brilliantly with the vintage car image and your layout with the sentiment on the fishtail banners looks great :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
