Guest DT on Julia Spiri Challenge #118--Unusual Hair!

I am so thrilled to be asked to be the Guest Designer for Challenge #118 at Julia Spiri Stamps for the month of May!!  The theme of this challenge is "Unusual Hair" and that's always a leap out of my comfort zone lol!

I chose to go with yellows, oranges and reds thinking along the "summertime" theme of the card.  I am using the image called "Girl on a Swing" and adore it so much-especially the curly eyelashes (one of Julia's trademarks).  I mounted the finished copic colored image on top of a sunny yellow gloss embossed (flowers) cardstock and then used a green summer meadow design paper for an additional mat.  Felt like she was swinging up in the clouds with the cloud paper! Topped the Birthday card off with a soft flower from Petal Lu and a "Hello" chipboard tag.  The inside liner again has the embossed paper from the front mat and a stamped sentiment inside.
I hope you will start working on YOUR entry right away and enter it in Julia's Challenge!  And while you're at it, explore her Stamp store here to see so many more unique images.  You will fall in love with them!
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
