HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUGABOO!

If you are here for the 
BUGABOO STAMPS
3rd BIRTHDAY BASH
BLOG HOP

please click HERE

Bugaboo Stamps is celebrating its 3rd birthday with a week-long birthday bash and Saturday's festivities see the start of a blog hop.

So as not to confuse the comments by the hoppers with the posts from the challenge blogs,I have created this separate post for entering my card into some challenges.

This is my birthday card:


My card features the Bugaboo image called Theodore - Birthday - Sign which I printed onto gingham check DP after changing the colour of the lines to red.  Here is a better look:


I coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen, using am monochromatic colour palette ( yes, and brown - but that's a hair colour isn't it?).  The balloons have been Glossy Accent -ized.  As an  embellishment I made a concertina half- flower and then added other half-flowers on the other side.

The following items have also been used to create my card:

white CS card base
pink CS card mats
pink/white polka dot DP
pink satin ribbon and bow
acrylic and gem beads in two corners
pink raindrops

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
