Just Magnolia and Hanglar

Hi everyone, A quick post here as I am so late getting this one in for the sketch challenge for Just Magnolia and Hanglar.
I received this image yesterday from Gurlee Girl craft store, it was the sponsor for the CLP blog hop which I won. I got 3 Magnolias and just had to colour this one straight away.
I am using Prismacolor pencils at the moment and coming to grips with this colouring style. My biggest difficulty is in knowing which colours to put together. I think maybe this one is one of the better ones. What do you think?

Bazzill cardstock, Stampin Up DP and ribbon, flowers from stash. Mat for image is a Nellie Snellen frame.

Hope you like. Thanks so much for visiting.

Congratulations on your winnings Marion, there's nothing nicer than free rubber!
Your card is so beautiful and your colouring is fabulous! I love my pencils but haven't used them for a while, I always struggled the most with skin tones, but you've had no problems at all with flesh colours. You've got the shading done so well. I love the colours..blues being my favourite, and the embellies are also so pretty.

Hugs Elaine xx

Hi again Marion :)

This is a very beautiful colour scheme, I love these shades of blue. And lucky you winning such a fab prize, these Tildas always looks so gorgeous.

Beautiful bow and embellies too, and great colouring.

Now, what a terrible week I have had!! :( not only is my new satellite internet pants, but we lost our electricity for 3 days!! So, no crafting, no blogging or commenting for me, and when we finally had power restored, the internet wouldnt play. And then when that chirped up, Mr Blogger annoyed me big time! :( tut! :D

Still back and kicking now eh? :) lol.

Have a great weekend,
