Red Sky at Night

Sailor's Delight... As the old wives tale goes... How about a Red Sunset:

This card was created for this week's Just for Fun color challenge:

As you can see I am doing a better job embracing red! The Tropical Sunset image was colored using my blending tool, distress inks and a post it to mask the sun. The sand was created using a piece of card stock and Frayed Burlap Distress Embossing Powder - it feels like sand - well sand paper anyway!
