Fusion #5

It's time for Fusion #5!!

You know when you make a card that you have had great difficulty with, but then you end up with a card that you're so very happy with?!  Yep, that.  I nearly gave up on trying to use the sketch, and then I nearly gave up trying to use the photo inspiration, but I persevered and used both to create this fusion:

The little girl (coloured with Copics) and the sentiment are from My Favorite Things "You're so Tweet" (I love her!!)  The blue background (to match the turquoise tree in the photo) is Hero Arts Branch Background stamped in HA Soft Pool shadow ink.  The Broderie Anglaise ribbon is from May Arts. 
I created the stripes on her skirt with the Copic colourless blender pen, to try to match bag in the inspiration photo.   Here's what she looks like from the inside of the card:
