Loves Me, Loves Me Not

Good morning everyone! Boy yesterday was a really quiet day in blog land! Every place I went barely had visitors. My e mail was super slim too. What's going on? Is everyone doing the Splitcoast challenges or just out enjoying the weather?

I have a card today that I did for another of the dirty girl challenges. Only one challenge this time around, but I love how the card turned out! I used the Loves Me, Loves Me Not image and colored it with copic markers.

(click to enlarge)

The grass and sky are chalked. The challenge was to Tie One On and use ribbon. I have the double ribbon going across the card, but the flowers that are in the corner are also from ribbon and I just cut them out.
I used a coluzzle to cut the oval, (oh, I guess that officially qualifies this card for the Cut It Out challenge as well!) and when I snipped the oval out it got a little crooked and bugged me so I distressed all around the edge to conceal the crookedness. I tied a little flower charm to the ribbon and I really like what that little charm adds to the card.
Here are the copic colors I used to color this.

I have to get my menu for the week planned out and then make a grocery list. I also need to work on a Christmas card because tomorrow is Christmas card Monday! I hope whatever your plans are that you enjoy your day! Thanks for looking!
