ABC Challenge: R is for Ribbon, Roses & Red

Time for another fun challenge at ABC Challenges today. This time we are up to R and the challenge is to use Ribbons, Roses and Red for your creation. Our sponsor for today's challenge are Marianne Designs & Aurora Wings and I decided to use Aurora Wings Rite of Spring  digital stamp: 

For my card  I printed my image on Kryogen card stock and then coloured it with my copics. Then I cut around the image using Marianne designs Creatables LR0242 die. I then cut a red border using the same die set and added that as a frame.
The Copic colours I used are:  skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, flowers:YR0000, YR00, R0000, R21, BV0000, BV000, BV01, RV0000, RV10, V0000, V01, B0000, B000, B01, YR12, YR02, Y0000, Y10, Y11, G0000, G20, G82, BG11, BG0000, R24, R22

I then added a bouquet of beautiful flowers, tied with a red ribbon and a charm. I used some black and white patterned paper from my stash and a black die cut swirl.

I was really happy with the pastel colours on my image. I usually prefer brighter colours. Here is a closer look:
