The Sugar Bowl - Challenge #15 - Gayles Sketch

One more card to post this evening -
this one is for
The Sugar Bowl Challenge #15
We were to follow Gayles Sketch
and also add Ribbons & Bows somewhere on the card.

I really struggled with this card for some strange reason
I just don't know what it was.
The sketch was so easy to work with,
the image wasn't the problem
and adding bows or ribbons wasn't the problem either
I think my big struggle ended up being the paper
I LOVE THIS PAPER, but....
I just couldn't find anything that really matched it.
So I think that is where my struggle was.

My bows were pre-made bows, they were actually on a cord
but I took them off, and used them by themselves.
I added punched butterflies using a shiny silver paper
to tie it in with the silver that is in the butterfly background paper.

I DO like the way the card came out, but in my mind,
something is just a little bit off, and I can't quite figure out what.
Oh well, what's done is done I suppose.
I think I've lost my Mojo!
I hope it returns VERY SOON!
That paper appears to be red,
but it's actually a very rich shade of pink!
I colored her shirt to match the paper, and I KNOW that was the RV34 "Dark Pink" Copic Marker. I definitely need to invest in some sort of light tent for taking pictures I guess. LOL
