LaLa Land Challenge - A Touch of Red

I LOVE creating with red, so this was a super simple challenge for me. This week at LaLa Land Crafts Blog, our Design Team was challenged to create with just a touch of red. I wanted to stick with the turquoise color and give my card just what the challenge suggested, just a touch of red.
These Webster's Pages papers were the perfect choice, as they have the turquoise colors, but have just the slightest hint of red in the flowers and design. So pretty. I paired them up withFancy Marci, which was the perfect image for the feel that I was going for with this card. I wanted to the papers to be as fancy as this cutie image, and I think these are a perfect pair!
I colored Marci with copics.
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30
Hair - E27, E23, E53, E50
Dress 0 BG75, BG72, BG10, R27, R24, R22, R29, W5
Shoes - C1, C3, C5, R27, R24
I cut my image out with Oval and Labels 10 Nesties. I added pearls to the outside layer of the image.
I used some Wild Orchid Crafts Vintage Seam binding in white, and dyed it with Red Velvet Glimmer mist to match the colors of the papers. I put a pearl brad through the center of the bow to make it stand out as an added touch. I also used some Wild Orchid Crafts Flowers on my card (of course!!! LOL). I used 25mm turquoise rose, red sweetheart blossoms, and cream aster daisies. I used my Martha Stewart Frond punch for the branches, and my Doohickey swirl die for the red cardstock swirl.
I hope you will pop on over to the LaLa Land Crafts Blog and check out what the other DT ladies made for this week, they have some amazing creations!
