Rose With Balloon

Hi everyone!  I used Rose With Balloon from CC Designs on this birthday card I created today.  The image is colored using Spectrum Noir pens.

I used the June #1 sketch from Viva La Verve  along with the color challenge at Colour Q. 

I layered card stock, patterned card stock, embossing, fancy cutting, ribbon, gems and diamond stickles to finish the front of my card.   I added a blue star gem to the headband and a smaller one to the belt.  I added the diamond stickles to her headband, belt, shoes, balloon, the dots on her socks and to the two yellow banners.  The embossing is done using a star embossing folder from Darice.

I am entering my card into the following challenges:
