Peachy Keen Challenge - Photo Inspiration

If you're looking for the Snowman Blog Hop (and giveaway), click HERE or scroll down to the previous post!

It's Friday again - so time for another Peachy Keen Challenge! This week the challenge is an inspiration photo. But first, here is my card for the challenge:

The Challenge:
Create ANY project of your choice using this photo as inspiration. Be sure to check out the rules on the Peachy Keen sidebar if this is your first time playing along. Click HERE to head over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog to read all about how to join in on the fun, and earn "Top Peach"!!!

Isn't this picture is GORGEOUS?!?!?!?! I would love to step right into it and join the party! Definitely puts me in the mood for spring! I decided that the picture couldn't possibly be more girly, and fell in love with the colors - so that is what inspired my card!
I used this super cute set for my card - LOVE the sentiments that go with the ADORABLE image! I didn't realize until I looked at this that I happened to color her pretty much exactly the same colors as the front of the package! Hmmm...guess they must be perfect for her, huh? :0)

I used my Copics to color her, then used some papers from a My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pad for the rest of the card. 
Inked the edges of the white cardstock with Tim Holtz distress ink in Antique Linen (my favorite) and the edges of the pattern paper with Vintage Photo (my other favorite!)  
The banner on the top left is hand trimmed, and I pop-dotted the main image from the background. This picture shows it a little better I think: 
Finished off with a Papertrey Ink Button, and a bit of Papertrey Ink Button Twine. I kind of like both of those things a lot too! 
Thanks so much for stopping by! I had so much fun checking out all your entries for the Pocket Challenge from last week - and can't wait to see what you create this week! Have fun playing along!!!
