Cupcake Craft Challenge 29 - Inspiration

This weeks challenge over at Cupcake Craft has been set by Jilly and she has chosen an inspirational picture as her challenge, you can make anything you like but your inspiration must come from the picture...colours, theme, etc. I really struggled with finding some suitable papers for this card and I eventually found this little chap right at the bottom of my craft box....phew! I've coloured my Giggling Tilda in with PM's and she has been mounted onto an embossed background which has been left white because of the vibrant colour elsewhere on this card. Ribbon, flowers, brad and gems all from my stasharooney. TFL :)

PS: I'm really not sure if I like this card, yellow is so not my colour lol!

Oh, this is lovely Donna! I just love your coloring of giggling Tilda. You did a great job of balancing your white and yellow colors! Really like how this fabby card turned out!
I hardly use yellow and don't have much along those lines...I'll have to dig also!
Blessings, Maria

Such a sweet card Donna, I actually love yellow but I know a lot of people don't, the white offsets the brightness so beautifully and your Tilda is as cute as can be, love your colouring of her. Chris x
