Paper Sundaes Challenge #11 - Photo Inspiration

Happy Sundae!  This week's challenge over at Paper Sundaes is a photo inspiration challenge.  I've never done a photo inspiration challenge so this was another first for me!  The photo that our card had to be inspired by was this:
The design team used Sweet Pea Ching-Chou Kiuks images from the Fantasy Art Collection which you can pick up at Paper Jewels.  I chose the image "It's My Birthday" and based my card on the colours I saw in this image that inspired me which was purple/pink, yellow & blue.  Here is my card:
I coloured the image with copics (B0000, B00, E00, E02, E41, YR21, YR23, YR24, RV32, RV34, RV09, V12, V17, R02, Y11) and used my spica glitter pens (I love these) in Pink, Lemon & Lavender to add glitter to her wings, top, the purple candle and all the yellow stars.  I really wish I could get the glitter to show up better in photos.  All paper used was Basic Grey and I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the middle strip of the card & added a few dew drops to the corners.  Be sure to check out Paper Sundaes for the rest of our Design Teams amazing creations & be sure to play along with us this week for your chance to win some Sweet Pea Stamps of your own!  I will also be entering my card into the Flutter By Wednesday Challenge.  This week it is an open challenge and be sure to use an image with wings (a butterfly, fairy or angel)!

What a fun card :-) The background DP goes well, and the colouring is great. This would make a good birthday card
