Black with a Splash of Yellow

I'm using the last of my favorite black, shiny paper today.  I'm really going to have to get more. I've exhausted the supply in town here, so I'm going to have to go online.  I really love it.

I also finally pulled out a Tilda image. I haven't used one of those in quite a while.  It was good to get her out and give her some color.  I'm playing with a color challenge, that requires you to use black and white mainly, with a splash of yellow.

Here's what I did:

I used my copics, of course. I added some bling using the yellow spica marker as well, on her bow.  I used some circle and scalloped lacey circle dies from Spellbinders to set up the Tilda image.  I added some ribbon and flowers for embellishment. The largest flower is a white Prima flower that I sprayed with Lemon Glimmer Mist. It turned out nicely, don't you think?

This card is also an easel card. Check this view out:
