Locked Things - Crafty Creations 85 Music/Dance

Hi everyone!
  Well if you didn't notice I made a mistake and this posted this morning when it shouldn't have! So sorry!  But now I can finally post it!  I've been really excited about this card!!  This week Christy Croll is sponsoring the Crafty Creations Challenge! WOO HOO!  She's giving the winner a $10 gift certificate so make sure to join in on the fun!  The challenge is to use music and/or dance to make a card, layout or whatever!  So join the fun!!


I made this card using Key to My Heart image from Tiddly Inks.  I was listening to Jack Johnson's song the other day called Losing Keys and I immediately thought of this image...so I knew I had to make this card for the challenge! 

I colored her with Copics and popped her from the background with pop dots. 
The paper in the background is a music note paper from Tim Holtz Ideology stack.  I inked up the edges with Close to Cocoa.  I also computer generated the sentiment.  The inspiration for the color actually came from the swirly bling in the background! 

I love this color and it just fit the whole card.  I also decided to add this cute little key charm I had in my stash to the turquoise ribbon that also matched.  I LOVE the way this card turned out! Thanks so much for stopping by - go to Crafty Creations to join the fun and check out the cards they made using Christy's images from Tiddly Inks!  I am also entering this at Color Me Copic's challenge since I used the tutorial to color her hair.  Make sure to check it out!! It's a wonderful tutorial!
Enjoy!
