Birthday Balloons

Birthday Balloons - It is time for another challenge at Seems a Little Sketchy and we have this fabulous sketch for you.

For my card, I used some designer papers that have been in my stash for quite awhile. They are called celebration. They were marketed for Big Lots.

My image is by QKR Stampede, who is sponsoring us. Someone is going to win 5 of their super cute images. 

I used Birthday Girl and I colored her with Copics. I really worked on making her balloons transparent, but I think I still need to work on this. So hopefully next time, my balloons will appear more rounded.
I added some Stickles to her blouse. After all, a girl needs some bling.

My sentiment is SU; as is the punch that it was punched with. I used peeled paint distress ink.

The candle punch is EK Success.

One green brad on top left and three orange brads on the bottom right corner finish off my card.
