Inkspiration Colour Challenge #17

How exciting - the Inkspiration Challenges from Makeesha have started again.  First up is this colour challenge:

And here's my card:

I chose to use this sweet Tilda with Bike from Magnolia Stamps.
So I've started with a base card in Very Vanilla, then layered Choc Chip and Cameo Coral.  I've used the Sprinkles stamp set for make up a background on the Coral cardstock.
Next up, I've used the Nestabilities Labels Three on some So Saffron pattern paper.  For the main image, I've inked up in Black Stazon onto watercolour paper, then coloured in with my inks and aqua painter.
For some added touches of prettiness, I've used the Lace Doily punch and also some lace and buttons.
I've added a 'sending you a smile' sentiment in So Saffron. 
Here's a closer look:

Product used:
Stamps: Magnolia Stamps, Sprinkles
Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Choc Chip, Cameo Coral, Pattern paper So Saffron
Ink: Cameo Coral, So Saffron
Others: Lace, buttons, twine, Lace Doily punch (Martha Stewart), aqua painter, Nestabilities Labels Three
