February sketch?

Hi girls! Well, this card was intended for the Magnolia-licious sketch challenge, but I goofed up! Let's just say I used a little "Creative License", okay? I LOVE this new Basic Grey paper, Porcelain. I just got the 6x6 pad and I think I was focused on not covering up too much of the wonderful zigzag pattern. Of course, you can see that's where I got my colors for Tilda from. I almost always cut Tilda out and mount her on a background paper so this was a challenge! I couldn't mess up and color outside the lines too much! The edges of this panel are sponged with some SU Blush and Banana and then doodles with a black marker. The punch on the lace edge is an old Fiskars design. I don't use it much because it sticks except on the thinnest of papers. I think they have improved punches so much!

I realize my buttons don't quite match (No, it's not the photo!)! Everything else I had was too matchy, matchy so it didn't stand out. So I went with these peachy buttons from MME.
Copics I used are as follows:
Skin E00, E02 and R20
Greens: YG91, YG93, and YG95
Corals: R11, E93, and RV42
Yellows: YR31 and Y21
Thanks for coming by today! I truly appreciate it!
Cheryl

Hi Cheryl,
OH MY GOODNESS!!! Look at your colouring with those Copics!!! This is so wonderful. I haven't seen this paper as yet - no wonder you didn't want to cover it up. I also haven't seen the challenge yet so I don't know what you have done that you shouldn't have - this is to DIE for!
