Thinking of Doodle Pantry

It has been a long, long time since I have used a Doodle Pantry image.  I just have not been able to make the time to get it done.  
I got a couple of images printed this weekend and actually go a card made with one of them.  Stayed up pretty late last night as a result, but that's okay.
I did something rather different with this card.  I can't decide if I like it or not.
For a background and embellishments, I did not match any of the colors I had used on the image!  Eeks!
Sure makes the image stand out!
Grrr, that grossgrain ribbon is a perfect match to the DP but the photo has it looking dull.  I have had this ribbon for well over a year, maybe 2, and have just opened the package today!!!  Terrible!
The DP is the first I have used of my Prima paper pad.  I think it's yummy!
I used Prismacolor pencils to color the image and rubbed chalk around the edge.

Onto the challenges:
Doodle Pantry - use a DP image
Stamps R Us - going digital
Really Reasonable Ribbon - anything goes
2 Sisters - how does your garden grow?
Stamp Something - anything goes
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Sat. - old supplies (ribbon)
Digital Tuesday - 'thinking of you'
Creative Card Crew - May Flowers
Crafty Creations - anything
Paper Play - anything goes

Everyone's tastes are different, so tell me --- how do you like the card since I did not match the colors to the image??  Is it something you would do, or would never do?  I'm curious.

I love it, it is beautiful, bright and delightful! I think it turned out really good and congrats on your courage to try something different. Bet it felt good:) I will have to have a go at it, I am very matchy, matchy but your card is so good I will have to give it a try. Thanks for joining challenge #12 at Doodle Pantry!

You know, I think it's awesome that everything is un-matched! And that bird just pops against the background! Love your card, and love that you went a bit outside the box with colors and patterns! Great job! Thanks for taking part in our Doodle Pantry Challenge - will look forward to seeing you back for the next challenge!

I think it still works the way you have it. You tied in the colors from the BG elements by sponging the purple around the birdie panel, so it works! VERY adorable too! Thanks so much for playing with us at Doodle Pantry Digital Challenge 12!
