MIM #12 & CR84FN Color Challenge

Today I made a card for Papertreyink Make it Monday #12 (Hand-drawn Line Frame) that also fits the color challenge at CR84FUN.  Top find out more about the CR84FN challenge, here is a link for the details. http://cr84fncolorchallenge.blogspot.com/2011/04/cr84fn24-terrific-top-3.html  The colors this week are Red, Aqua and White.  Such a great combo!
Here is my card:
I used my Impression Obsession Cover a Card: Roses stamp in Hawaiian Shores ink to stamp the pattern around the hand-drawn frame.  It was actually easy to draw the line frame, much easier than before I watched Nichole Heady's MIM tutorial.  Here hints about drawing penci marks at each corner helped so much to  create a straight line.  I stamped the sentiment from Mat Stack #4 and used that sweet little ladybug stamped with it's red polka dots for the main image.  The little train is made with red stickles and is quite glitzy in person.   I need more practice making even dots with my stickles, otherwise I was happy with the results of this card.  Thanks for taking a look!

Very nice. I love the colors, and the ladybug with its trail is so adorable. You distributed the colors so nicely, and your frame looks great. Nice work. ;-)

Adorable. Goodness me love the lady trail. Cute as. CR84FN have the best color combos on the planet if you ask me. This , in your capable hands, just proves it. I am so impressed with your frame. To hand draw it would do my head in. I thought that's why they had a stamp for it? Lol. Boy you have nailed it. Steady as a rock. Tres impressive. Gorgeous card!

Cathy, this card is so great! I love the way you did the frame itself (outside the hand drawn frame). The ladybug is adorable, and the image really lends itself to the color challenge. Great work!
