Inspirational Song!!

Hello all.
Well it's Sunday again and that means it is time for the new challenge over at Totally Tilda.
Please remember to hop on over to the Totally Tilda challenge blog and have a look to see if you were one of our lucky winners/Top 3.
Remember our winners and top three are chosen by Susie and the Design Team.
No random.org here! So if you won it's because we loved your creation.
Right on to the new challenge.
The theme for this fortnight's challenge is:
(Not Happy Birthday 'cos that's way too easy! LOL)
So, when we say inspired by a song, we want to see the song title in your card.  We don't want a card based on a memory of a song or a song that meant something to you at some point - the card must reflect the song! Bet that is as clear as mud eh?
Well hopefully my card below will show more what I mean.
This time we are lucky to be sponsored by:
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop are having a huge closing down sale!! Everything is reduced to rock bottom prices including all ribbon, twine, mulberry paper flowers, rubber stamps and embellishments.  Hurry stocks are selling out fast - you can browse the sale HERE
Just wanted to say thank you to The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop for their sponsorship over our challenges.  Sponsorship is always very gratefully received and makes challenges that little bit more fun to enter so without sponsors the blogging challenges would be a little less fun.
Thank you to all our sponsors large and small.
So here is my creation for this challenge:
And the song I chose for my inspiration??
Turning Japanese by The Vapors
Hope you get the gist of the challenge now.
Anyhoo, I used Japanese Tilda and coloured her with my Copics.
Here's a little close up of my colouring, the background is sponged using Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
The flowers are all from my stash. I used my Martha Stewart PATP for the paper behind Tilda and also the lace effect on the "steps" of the card.
The gorgeous pin on the left there is from my lovely friend Mandy. Mandy sells these in her Etsy shop.  There is a link on her blog - you really should visit - they are beautiful. 
The parasol and the branches above Tilda's head are Clarity Stamps and the ticket sentiment is one of the lovely Lynne's from Sentiments 4 You that I have in my digi stash.  Sadly no longer running. Boo!
The papers are from an Ooh La La CD called Fleur D'Imagination and you can see all the wonderful CD's here.
