Birthday Wishes

I created this birthday card using this adorable image from Suzy Zoo.  The base of my card is pink backed in white and then backed again in green. I added a square of yellow backed in green and then again in white to the left side.  I cut a strip of white and punched it using an eyelet lace border punch and added it to a strip of yellow.  I added a green dotted ribbon where the white and yellow come together to hide the seam. I added that to the bottom of the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I backed the image in pink and then in white and added it to the left side of the card.  I added a bow made out of the same ribbon to the left side of the image.  I added a yellow flower to the right upper corner of the image.  I stamped the image and backed it in pink and then in white and added it to the bottom right corner.  I added a 6mm white heart pearl to the flower and both ends of the ribbon.  I also added 4mm white pearls to the upper right corner and and lower left corner.
