Michelle Perkett Sketch/color challenge#38

Hi ladies! I guess I'll start with the close-up since that's the order these came up in. This is for Michelle Perkett's Sketch/ color challenge. I've used this adorable image from Michelle called "Abby and Walter's Birthday Wishes". There's a link to Michelle's on my sidebar so you can visit her blog to see all the beautiful inspiration and artwork from Michelle and the fabulous DT. Okay...the whole picture! I cut Abby and Walter apart and resized them and the balloons for placement on the card. Walter is attached with dimensionals as he looks on at Abby's yummy cupcake. I used a big sequin behind the candle and blinged it up a bit with yellow stickles. She's having a "Bright Shiny Birthday"! I doodled two of the balloons with little flowers and polkadots just to change it up a bit. They are attached to SU gold cord which is glued behind Abby and tied to Walter's tail. The ballons themselves are attached with dimensionals. The coloring was done with copics and gel pens.

This is the sketch for the challenge. You could either do just the sketch "or" the colors (Turquoise, cream, sand,chocolate) or combine both. My entry is a combination of both.
DP...PTI.Chocolate Remix, S.U. Sweetpea Designer Series., and DCWV Retro Stack.
cardstock...S.U.
Two little gems...stash.
