My favourite colour without a doubt is red, so I made this the main focus of my card:

I chose to work with Amber Ink's You're The Perfect Package set - it is fabulous as there are so many different images you can use to create exactly what you need.

I coloured the girl with Copics and then used my white gel pen to add spots to the present.  I then matted this onto some Real Red cardstock and used my slot punch to create a small slit in the top left.  I then matted some Kaisercraft Fun Fair DP on to some Whisper White cardstock and added this to my Real Red base. Finally I tied some white ribbon around the card, sliding it under my main panel, but out through the slit at the top. I actually created the tag by printing out the tag image from the set, but then cut some off to create the right size for my card. (I could have resized it, but didn't realise until I had printed it out). The sentiment has been stamped in Tuxedo Black ink.

The inside uses a sentiment from the set and I also adhered another present image along with bow. To finish off the inside, I added a strip of red cardstock and some more DP.

Voila - nice and easy, but I am happy with the result.  Now take a look over at the CSAYL blog to see what other wonderful creations the rest of the team have come up with! Don't forget to link your creation for your chance to win this week's prize from Amber Ink!
