Colour Create - First DT card!!! Challenge 47

I am absolutely over the moon to picked to be on the Colour Create DT- fabulous team of peeps, a number of whom I've known and admired in blogland for a while, and the rest - well I can't believe I didn't know them and their amazing work!!!  Thanks so much for the spot on the team, ladies, hope I don't let you down!! 
Anyhoo - onto my first card and wow what a picture we had to work with!!  This was chosen by Karen, isn't it fab!! The brief for this challenge is to use white card with two colours picked from the photo and you have the optional extras of using an element from the picture such as satin, flowers, charms, pins etc.
I knew almost immediately that I was going to use this one and only Stampothique girl that I have had in my stash an age!!  I adore these images but think I'll have to be quite selective who I send this too!!  I've gone for the rather obvious colour combo of the burnt orange and green and have kept to her grungy theme by dirtying the edges of the mat with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink and I've also roughed up the edges.  I also like that my bow mirrors the style of the Hatter's hair - lucky that!!!  The little sweetie sentiment is from a Crafty Individual set and love how it contrasts with the image - still, we shouldn't judge a book by its cover - I just know she is a real sweetie!!!

The Colour Create team, old and new, have come up with the most amazing and actually, quite varied creations!!  We've all seen different colours in the sketch - and if you look, there are alot there!  Do hop on over to the Colour Create challenge blog - you're in for a real treat!  We are also being sponsored  this week by Wink Wink Inc so get your colouring tools out!!
