Belles 'n Whistles Challenge - The Color Red!

Happy Monday everyone and time for another Belles 'n Whistles ChallengeThis week our host is incredibly talented Lils and she decided she wants to see some red on your cards! Aaaahhh we can do that...easy peasy isn't it? So get out your Belles 'n Whistles stamps and color red and start creating! :-) For all the challenge details please see our Belles 'n Whistles blog. And of course there is a fab prize to win as always, sponsored by fabulous Summer ;-)

I used another beauty from the newly released 'Forever Young' collection called 'Princess Tales'. She is colored with Copics (list of Copics used at the end) and I added lots of glitter (Stickles Star Dust and Silver Ice) to her dress and tiara to create enough glamour fitting for a princess. The sentiment stamp is from Catslife Press and the wonderful sketch from the ongoing MMSC #59 challenge. I'm also entering Cute Card Thursdays challenge which is Challenge 118 - Reuse, Renew, Recycle. I reused the trimming which was on a bag I made last year.
And hooray I stuck to my promise I made to myself...I only used scraps on my card (except the card base). I'm literally drowning in design paper and cardstock scraps and it's definitely time to use them up. So my DP scraps are from My Minds Eye and the CS scraps are Bazzill. Here are some more close ups:

The beautiful two red roses are not paper flowers they are made from fabric. I found them at Walmart in the sewing/notions department. I just added some Burgundy Stickles, Chandelier Crystals (Michaels) and Prima leaves.

Copics used:

E000, E01, E11, E13, E31, E25, E50
R000, R21, R30, R32, R35, R37, R39
G20, G24
C00, C0, C1
