Love You Lara

The new challenge this week at Creative Card Crew is to Use the Colors of Your Country & since I am from Canada, the colours I've used are mainly red & white.  Oh, I was moaning so loud when I read the challenge... the colour red with my Copics has been such an anchor for me & although I have been getting better with it, doing a whole card with red was sorely testing me.  But I pulled out my new Copic Xpress paper & that stuff is fabulous... no smearing outside the lines or the colour running.  I am totally sold on that paper!  Anyway, this week's sponsor is Digital Delights & I chose their Love You Lara image... nothing more red than a ladybug & hearts, right?  The card is a bit of a mixture - I used a Cuttlebug die for the flowers & Martha Stewart's oak leaf punch for the leaves.  The ticket stamp is Tim Holtz's & the sentiment is from a set I bought used & the name is not marked on it.  If this set looks familiar to anyone, let me know because I'll label it properly.  The stamps are a dark blue & the writing is imprinted on the gray of the reverse side (I wish all unmounted used that technique because it works really well).  So, head on over to Creative Card Crew's Challenge to see what the rest of the design team has created & be sure to add your entry.
Challenges:
A Spoonful of Sugar - Valentines
