CHALLENGE: Spiral Vs. Paradox

I missed the last couple challenges because I took a wonderful trip with my mother to St. Maarten.  We had a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, taking in a butterfly farm, the beautiful beaches and some fabulous restaurants on the French side and the Dutch side.
On coming back to reality I looked forward to jumping back into the Diva Weekly Challenge.  It is always a chance to stretch and do a Zentangle following the Diva's direction.  This week I wasn't sure I was up for it once I read that we were to use a spiral string and use paradox to tangle within the spiral!  But, thankfully, Margaret Bremner's paradox tutorial boosted my confidence, and I finally sat down and tangled my entry.  It might not win any prizes, but here it is!

Thank you to Certified Zentangle Teacher, Marizaan van Beek, all the way from South Africa for the challenge suggestion.  The submissions are quite amazing.
