Red, White and Blue

I am so lucky to live in Canada!  We are so very fortunate with our life styles.  I am also very proud to have had an American father and therefore have dual citizenship with the very exciting good old U.S.A!

The challenge over at Totally Tilda is red, white and blue so I just thought of America and all its glory.  This card came about from those thoughts.

I have had a number of issues when coloring with the red Copics but this one turned out great.  I am really happy with the the way the reds blended and they didn't bleed on me.  Here is a list of supplies that I used.

Papers were Bazzill and from stash; the lace and ribbon were also from the stash; flowers are Magnolia and Prima; the die cuts are made using the Nestabilities Dies and Copics that I used are:

Dress - R24, 29, 39
Wings and dot background - B000, 00, 04, 21, 23, 24, 26, 29
More of the dots - BG000, 0000, 10
Ground - C1, 3, 00
Hair - E29, 25, 31
Skin - E21, 00, 000, 0000

Here is a close-up of the coloring.

One more photo for you of the insert.

I am entering this one in a couple of challenges and they are:
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes with the option of lace
Totally Tilda- Red, White and Blue
Make My Monday - Red flowers
