Birthday Card

I made this birthday card for an elderly lady in our church.  The image that I used is from Mo's Digital Pencil Too and is called Angellina's Balloons.  I thought that this image was perfect for the carnival theme challenge at Mo's Digital Challenges.  I used the sketch from Sketch and Stash.  This week you chose which sketch you wanted to use out of their previous sketches. I chose sketch #30.
The base of my card is sugar n spice cardstock, backed in white and then backed again in bright green. I added a strip of striped patterned paper backed in white.  I punched the bottom of the white using an eyelet lace border punch.  I added that to the top of the card. At the bottom of the card I added a strip of sherbert orange cardstock backed in white.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. I backed the image and the sentiment in bright green and then again in white cardstock.  I added green sprinkles (from Annabelle Stamps) to the sherbert orange strip.
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
