Black & White Plus One Color SC#22

Here's my card for the Saturated Canary Challenge #22 to use Black & White, plus one other color. I used a combination of Copic red colors in the R family for this card. I'm new to the Saturated Canary challenges, and my coloring skills don't compare to what I've seen others create, but I just adore her digi images with those big eyes and beautiful hair, so I'll continue trying until I get it right. This was a free image I d/l from her blog, and I just love it! The background was done with black cardstock, and an overlay of white done with a Cheery Lynn small lattice die that is perfectly sized for an A2 card. The flourishes were cut with the Cheery Lynn mini flourishes die in red & white. I added a tiny silver heart charm that just looked like it belonged on this card! I {heart} this darling image!. I added some Spica glitter pen accents to the leaves, dress, and lips but my camera (or photography skills) didn't pick up that detail. If you click the picture it shows up a little clearer for some reason. The red gemstones are from Want2Scrap that I bought at a recent scrapbook expo.
Here's another photo done in evening light that might show that detail a little better...
Thanks for stopping by today and happy crafting!
