Monthly Image Challenge

Hello and happy Friday! I hope you've had a good week. I've been in a bit of a card-making funk lately.... I have had no mojo whatsoever! Sad, but true!
I am involved in a monthly card challenge with a group of ladies at SCS, where the challenge is to use the same image to make a card. This month our image came from Linda; Tilda is stamped on the prettiest shimmery carstock. Isn't she sweet? I must confess to having a fear of coloring Tildas, so this is the first card I have ever posted using one. I guess this challenge was good for getting me out of my funk, because I didn't want to flake and disappoint my friends!
Image: Magnolia
Ink: Sakura Black Gel Pen
Paper: PTI Kraft, SU! Marina Mist, My Mind's Eye "Abbey Road" DP
Embellies: SU! Marina Mist Grosgrain Ribbon, PTI Button/Twine/Felt
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, The Cat's Pajamas Cut-Ups Die, PTI Doily Die, EK Success 3D Dots
I am happy with the way this card turned out. I had the "bright" idea of shading around Tilda with pink; after I started I thought "oh no!" but I kept going and just rolled with it. In the end, I think it looks okay. It was a fun challenge; I can't wait to see our image for March!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend!

I hafta say ... I would NEVER have thought to shade with pink but ya know, it TOTALLY works! It subtly brings in the shades from your DP. You are BACK girly!

Beautiful! Your coloring looks amazing, and I love the pink shadow, so pretty. I had no idea you had a fear of coloring Magnolias, you shouldn't because your coloring is always GREAT! Love the layout, doily die cut and felt flowers, all around beautiful! Glad it got you out of your funk, too!
