Wonderful Birthday

Hi everyone! I'm back with yet another card tonight.  I'm so behind on posting and I'm trying to catch up a little. 

 The image I used on this card is from Mo's Digital Pencil and is called Angelina's Balloons. 

The sketch that I used is from this week's challenge at Simon Says Stamp.

I started with a purple card base.  I cut a piece of soft lilac card stock just a little smaller than the base.  I added a strip of purple speckled patterned paper that I backed in purple card stock and added it down the side of the card.  I embossed a square piece of soft lilac card stock using a dot embossing folder and backed it with purple card stock.  I added a piece of purple dotted ribbon to a piece of purple shiny ribbon and added them across the middle of the card.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils and backed it in purple card stock.  I cut the sentiment out in a circle, backed it in purple card stock and then cut around it with scallop scissors.  I made a bow out of the shiny purple ribbon and added 3 purple pearls to the embossed square.  I also added purple glitter glue on her shoes.

So here is my card.....
