Challenge #233 Photo Inspiration!!

Hello!! You have just got to see what we have for you today over at the Just Us Girls Blog!  The inspiration is....well.... it's INSPIRATIONAL.  The photo Nancy has found just makes me want to create more cards with the colors/theme!! Please check it out.

.
 My card is somewhat different than my DT buddies.  When I saw the balloons I thought of this adorable Tilda from Magnolia-licious and when I found her I also found the stamp of 4 balloons you see in the background.  She is stamped on Xpress it blending card and colored with my beloved copic markers!
 I knew I wanted to pick up the greens and blues in the Inspiration photo so that drove my color choices.  On pinterest I found a hair color I liked and used those colors.   The background piece is cut with My Favorite Things pierced rectangles and Tilda is cut out and curved then mounted on dimensionals.  I didn't want to punch my main piece to put the ribbon through so I just poked it behind her legs and tied it.  The card base is baja breeze and the paper is from Graphic 45. Of course, the balloons and parts of Tilda's outfit are covered with Starduss Stickles for tons of sparkle
Here's a close up of this sweet girl.  I am so happy with how this card came out! I've missed my Tilda's and think I better get back to coloring one a week! It's good therapy for this tired teacher!
Thanks for coming by!! Please let this challenge take you up and away and create something to share with all of us!
(Keep reading for copic colors)
