Paper Sundaes Challenge #24 - Birthday's with Stamp & Create!

Happy Sundae!  This week's challenge over at the Paper Sundaes Blog has a theme:  BIRTHDAYS!  Who doesn't love creating birthday cards?  We are sponsored this week by Stamp & Create & Lacey was wonderful enough to let the design team play with some of the new images from the latest Wags n Whiskers Release "Let's Party".  These images are super cute so be sure to check them out!  I used the image Buddy's Balloon for my card:
The birthday paper I used for the background was my Imaginisce line called "All Kinds of Happy - Chatty Cake, Chatty Cake.  The image was coloured with copics and I airbrushed the background but when I took the photo it kept coming out looking uneven due to my flash (and bad lighting).  I used glossy accents for the balloon and for Buddy's nose because I wanted it to look wet.  Other supplies used:  circle & circle scallop nesties, MS border punch & Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder.    My son even had some fun playing with this image, he coloured the same image and gave it to his Uncle Brian for his birthday this weekend!  I love it when he wants to colour with me!  Here is his creation:

I love how he decided Buddy needed a brown eye patch, SUPER CUTE!  Be sure to check out the other DT creations at Paper Sundaes they are AMAZING!

Great card, I love the soft feel of it and muted colours--and so did you wind up getting an airbrush then? Looks great!
And thanks for sharing your little guys artwork too, I see talent runs in the family and he did a really good job with the colouring :-)
