Mojo Monday Contest [MOJO85]

This being my first Mojo card was very difficult in many ways and I learned a few lessons. I started it yesterday extremely sleep deprived. I had also purchased a new camera and spent many hours trying to figure out why my PC couldn't read the camera when it worked fine on the laptop. To create this card, I wanted to use a particular ribbon and that was another mistake. It's like buying a belt and building my wardrobe around it. It's extremely difficult and rarely works. I had the right paper colours but things got complicated when I was trying to decide which colour to put in each section. I also think the image I chose was too big. If I had used a smaller stamp then there would've been more room to work around it. Then when I started colouring I realized my pencil crayons just aren't going to cut it and I really need to get more markers. I love my bellas but they never seem to turn out the way I want them to.

Here's the Mojo Monday sketch:
