MAGNOLIA-licious February Sketch

I can't believe I've spent most of the day working on this card. I've fiddled around with rearranging paper, different sizes of ovals and ribbon and everything!!! The coloring with the Copics is now my favorite part of the whole process. Even with a sketch before me, I sure had a hard time with this one.

I dug through my bin of scrap paper to find something that would go with the new ribbon I received with my order. And as it so happened, I had the right Copic colors to coordinate.

Here is a side view so that you can see Tilda popped up and sitting on the ribbon:

My camera doesn't take very good close-ups, but here is a closer view of Tilda and the coloring:

Here are the colors I used:
