Mums the Word

Good morning everyone,I have  been real busy in the real world with family, so I've  been gone awhile. Made this little card for a sketch challenge at Stamp Fairy, and forgot to use their image...opps! Lol, but that's ok, I like the simplicity of it and love using black as matting; black seems to make colors pop and I love that. It is very bright and cheery out so this pic was taken outside and it really shows off the embossing I think. I chose an image from JustRite Stamps I got from Joan's Garden, sweet, sweet lady BTW. I colored the image with copics, blending yellow and green as requested at the Make it Colourful Challenge.
 the card stock is Bazzill , the ribbon is from Mike's $1 bin and I made the bead embellie, the pearls are Recollection's.
