Girl with Balloons - Birthday

I'm new to using Digi-stamps but I'm finding that I like them very much.  I made the following birthday card for my niece and want to enter it in the Catch the Bug Challenge for Bugaboo Stamps.

 This is the tag that pulls out from the pocket.

I used the Bugaboo WO Balloon Girl digi stamp.
I colored her with colored pencils.
I added some Stickles to the balloons and her shoes.
I had fun coloring her tights different un-matching patterns because that's how the kids are wearing them.
I used some liquid pearls to add a little to the pocket and to the scallop trim.
I stamped her name using Sweet Alpha Doodles stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop.
The star is from Stampin' Up.
I inked the edges with different shades of Martha Stewart inks.
The happy birthday sentiment is a rub-on.
All the papers were from my scrap pile.
That's all folks!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Come back soon.
