Magnolia Stamp Lovers Sketch Challenge

Over on the Magnolia Stamp Lovers blog, there is a sketch challenge posted! And boy oh boy was this sketch a challenge for me! I don't think I have spent so much time on a card before, but I am so pleased with how it turned out, I think it was time well spent =)
Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

This was the first time I've made a 5x7 card (I usually stick with the 4.23x5.5 size) and the first time I've cut out an image (those cutterbee scissors paid for themselves right there! Ha ha). This is one of my favorite Tilda images ~ she reminds me Shirley Temple =)

Details:
Stamp: A Little Yummy for Your Tummy ~ '60s Tilda
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics (R37, RV11, B21, E29, E25, E00, RV10). Colorbox Chalk inkpad in rouge and blue.
Paper: Fancy Pants Sweet Pea, Bazzill Cardstock.
Embellishments: Bazzill "just the edge" cardstock, misc. ribbon and button, Karen Foster's Scrappers Floss in pink and square Nesties.

You did a great job with the sketch, and your coloring of Tilda is nice. I like the pastel colors you used. The decorative border at the bottom is a nice touch. Thanks for participating in the challenge. We look forward to what you do with the next challenge. Be sure to add the StampingScrapping blinkie to your blog as that is part of the next challenge!
