Right onto this weeks challenge and it is the lovely talented Trish's turn to pick the theme and a nice easy one.
Our sponsor this week is The stamping Boutique and they are giving the winner of our challenge some fab images of their choice.
Ok on to my card for your inspiration and no it isnt a cute one from me this time. I have used one of our sponsors images and some gone for a clean lines

I am so liking red on my cards at the minute and normally I run for the hills with Red but not at the moment. Also I had to use some Black to be dramatic and make the image pop. The DP is from a Capsle collectiion by Papermania. Few Red gems some Red Satin ribbon. Touch of lace and a Whispers sentiment stamp. I coloured the image with my Promarkers and added some 3d gloss to the watering can.
Hope this has inspired you to enter our challenge and have fun and good luck cant wait to see your creations.
