CS: Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
Inks: Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen, Red Gingham ribbon, 1 3/8", 1 1/4" & 1"punches, paper piercing, clear EP, SU markers

This is awesome Charlotte... I always struggle with the sayings... I usually get everything designed and then feel there's no room for the sentiment... nicely done!
