Challenging myself | Dilo

Today I am sharing a card that I will be entering into my comadrita's Dilo En Español February challenge emphasis on challenge because I challenged myself to create a card in a style totally out of my element or style.

Here a closer look at the card I created in a style I call "Magnolia" style.  I wanted to create something using TH re-inkers and this is my first attempt.  I am also using modeling paste (the hearts in the background), gesso, cheese cloth, dew drops and lots more! lol
In addition to coloring the image with TH distress re-inkers I colored the flowers and the ribbon to match but I don't think the ribbon matches very well or as good as the flowers.

And here I continued to add more! LOL
Oh yeah, where you see big globs of gesso is because I am covering chunks of distress glitter that I did not like at all! LOL
Note: my photos were taken with an iPad and look to be of much higher quality on the iPad then here... I believe I lost lots of resolution because I used Blogsy (an apple app) to create this post.

Things I wanted to continue adding, but finally decided to stop!

Well, I hope I get lots of credit for trying!
On a serious note, you can go enter HERE with anything love themed and if you use this particular image well, Abby would love it too since her team is highlighting this image this month.
