Bizzy Bec's January Challenge

I hope everyone had a great New Year's & is ready to get back into a routine... I know I sure am.  The January challenge at Bizzy Bec's Store Blog is to create a project with 3 flowers, 2 buttons & 1 ribbon.  The winner of the challenge will receive a complete set of digis from the new image release & it is a prize worth fighting for.  The five images will be released on January 15 & believe me, they are gorgeous.  For my card, I chose Japanese Tilda & coloured her with Copics.  One of my DT buds said she looked like she was pregnant.  It's funny... she does look preggers & I haven't been able to look at her the same since. (Thanks L!).  Anyway... on to the card.   The sentiment is a freebie by Bec & this one plus three more can be found on the right side of Bec's Store Blog.  The flowers, papers & ribbon are from my stash & the Magnolia stamp, little white filler flowers & leaves are all available from Bizzy Bec's Online Store.  Be sure to have a good snoop while there because there's a chance to win a Spellbinder's Grand Calibur machine.
The card has been entered in the following challenges:
7 Kids College Fund - Anything Goes
Just Magnolia - Anything Goes
The Secret Crafter - Buttons & Bows
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
Mad for Markers - Anything Goes

She DOES look preggers, lol. The colouring is stunning though and the cherry blossoms complement the image perfectly!
Sorry I've been out of loop for so long, it's been more a hospital than a house here for almost a month!
