Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for a friend at church who was born on New Years Day. I used this adorable image from Mo's Digital Pencil called Bella & Bronte Celebrating. The base of my card is pink cardstock backed in red cardstock and is continued through each layer. The sentiment and image is backed in red cardstock. I added red stickles to all the red cardstock. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I added crystal stickles to the dress and confetti and red stickles to Bronte's collar and Bella's shoes. I punched a strip of white cardstock using a heart lace border punch from Martha Stewart Crafts and added it behind the bottom of the image. I added a strip of white ribbon behind the image. To finish my card I added a pink paper flower with a red and white heart button in the center. I added crystal stickles to the edges of the flower.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
