Trying to get my mojo back

Good morning all. Well I am trying my hardest to find my mojo. I just cant make a card from start finish at the mo. I seem to find a image, take god knows how long to decide what colours I am gong to use. This image seemed to take me 3 hrs to decide. Then last night I spent the evening deciding on papers and colours. This morning I printed off the papers. And then I decided I would work with a sketch.
It may have taken me alot longer to make this card than my norm. But I am pleased with the outcome and it's the first time I have used a Kenny K image as well. Like alot of my digi's they sit unused .

Anyway here is the Card

Image from Kenny K coloured with copic pens
