Winter Birthday For A Friend

My friend Denise was born on New Years Eve...this card is for her.  Between us we are both so busy we never see each other...wonder if I'll get to give it to her.  I stink at putting things in the mailbox for some reason.

This card was made specifically for the two Bugaboo/Catch The Bug challenges (Stella Says Sketch and the weekly challenge).  I used Penguin Birthday Balloon for this card.  I used the balloon twice.  I created the sentiment.  I used gel pens to color the image, added some Glossy Accents and some Nuvo Crystal Drops to the hat.  I added some gems and a lace bow.

Thanks for looking!
