Roses are Red!

Welcome and I want to share a card I created for the  CMC Challenge using our theme - "RED"  I loved the opportunity to try to color some red roses!

My image is a digital called Anastasia from Make It Crafty.   I love this beautiful image and one gets a lot of practice on hair!    In keeping with the challenge, I selected Red for my roses.   I used the beautiful abes Eight by Spellbinder for my die.    

Copic Markers Used: 
Skin Tones:  Middle Easter (Olive)  E50, E42, E53, E43, E34 
 and cast b41 (sparingly), R20 to lips and cheeks.  
Eyes: B21 and B23
Hair:  T0, T1, T4, T6, T8 and opaque white ink
Flowers:  Y000 Y02, Y35 and opaque white ink
and the roses are: R000, R20, R22, R24, R27 and R56. 
Green:  G21, G94, G99 and opaque white ink.    and just a tiny hint of R000

I am linking this card with the following wonderful challenges: 

Make it Monday Challenge  - Anything Goes
The Squirrel and The Fox - Song or Movie (Mine is Red Roses for A Blue Lady)

That is all I have for today.   I hope you participate in our challenge and also join in on our CMC 3 year Birthday Bash!
