Inspiration Challenge from a Pinterest Photo

Hi Friends and Stampers,

It's time for a new Challenge over at Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Blog. This week we have a Pinterest Photo to Inspire you. 

You can be inspired by the colors, the textures, the patterns, a design.  Whatever inspires you about this picture can be in your project.   Here is what I came up with.
I know, I did this fold last week, lol.   I had this fabulous East Wind Image in mind when I was making my card last week.  She is so great, I just love her and the expression on her face.  Of coarse she was going to say something sarcastic, and the Creative Vision Middle finger was just the saying I needed, "Ever have one of those days where your middle finger wants to answer every question?"  Of coarse I have those days! lol.   The Chandelier peaking out from the center of the card goes so well with her fancy dress and shawl.  My paper is a retired S.U. paper, something about Portraits.  The camera claimed blue but in real life it's a darker teal and I used my Copic Markers to match the colors: BG09, BG07, BG05, V17, V15, V12, R89, R39, R37, R35, and BG70 is the perfect outline color for her, it's the same shade of green only very light.  Her skin tones: E000, E00, E21, E93 and hair: E19, E97, YR24, YR21. 
The East Wind
On behalf of the design team I would like to thank The East Wind for providing us such fabulous images!  I think I'm going to have to go back and pick up one of those grumpy cats, lol.
