It's an Inspiration!

Well, hello again!  I'm trying to get caught up with our challenges over at the Crafter's Digital Arts Center.  We have just under two weeks left on our current challenges; they are all ending on June 30.  If you love working with digital art you should come on over and check us out.  The challenge I have designed my current card for is the "Inspiration" Challenge.  Thus, the title of my post.  I used a pretty image from Tiffany Doodles to design my card around.  Here is the inspiration from the challenge:

I used my usual A2 sized base for the card.  I chose three coordinating dps, and created my own sentiment for both outside and inside.
Once I determined where I wanted to position each dp, I did all the cutting.  This included cutting a backing piece to frame the image.
I lightly colored the image with Copics, and mounted it to its backing.  I diecut the outside sentiment, and colored the outer portion of the tag as well.  Two matching brads attached the tag to the background.  I used foam tape to affix the image piece.
To finish my card I simply printed the inside sentiment onto white card to give a light space for a handwritten message and signature.
This card would have been fairly quick to put together, but I tend to get picky sometimes which causes many of my projects to take much longer to make than they should.  (hehe)  Anyway, I'm pleased with how my card turned out; I think I did a pretty good job using the inspiration colors. What do YOU think?
See you again as soon as I can!!!
