Trendy Wedding card with Red Hydrangeas

Morning all!  It's been awhile since I've posted here... been feeling a bit under the weather of late and the clouds still haven't broken, if you know what I mean.  But this week it's my turn to set the challenge over at the One Stop Card Challenge and I've chosen the theme of PATTERNS.

I don't know about you, but I've been seeing houndstooth in particular... everywhere.
Shoes.  Handbags.  Skirts.  Pillows.  Laptops and composition books and pens.  It's all over the place.

So this week I chose trendy houndstooth as my pattern for a black, white and red wedding card:
