Hair Inspired Card!!!

This card was totally inspired by my new hairdo although the way it looked in my head and the way it turned out on paper are two totally different things. I would have played with it a little more but this card is for the Southern Girls Flower Challenge and I ran out of time. The left hand side of this card is driving me nuts. lol

The image used on this card is a Digi from The Paper Shelter who is one of the sponsors over at Southern Girls. I'm not used to using such bright colors but I think I'm feeling as washed out as all the Vintage colors that are popular now and I'm cravin' color. I paper pieced the flower to add a little dimension to the card. I might still add one more layer for the center of the flower.
Here is a picture of my hair in case you were wondering how on earth my hair could inspire this card. I love funky colored hair and my stylist is awesome.

Copics Used:
Flower: B02, B00, RV13, RV10, Y38, Y35, YG09, YG07, YG06
Bugs: B02, B00, RV13, RV10, C5, E11, E13, E09, E07, R27
Shadow: C1
