Heifer happy birthday

I was lucky enough to be given this fab penny black stamp quite a while ago and have never got around to inking it up. I wasn't quite sure what occasion to use it for but I decided it would make a fun teen girl birthday card.

I used scraps from my reds/pinks scrap folder, I'm never quite sure whether the papers I used are red or deep pink, but either way I thought it would be perfect for a teenage girl. I coloured the image with promarkers although there wasn't really a lot of colouring just really deep red/pink for the balloon and pale pink for the udder and nose and hooves, all different shades of course. I cheated a little on trying to keep to monochrome as I used green on the grass didn't think pink grass would work hope for the monochrome challenges I am entering will forgive me.

I used a Martha Stewart daisy border punch on the striped paper to form the borders to the base layer.The banner I used some paper with daisies on and after cutting a strip  hand cut the ends and then used sticky pads to raise the ends to add dimension. 

I added a couple of daises and a double hand tied bow and a button all pink of course. The sentiment is hand written around the edge of the image and I know its not spelt correctly but thought that just added to the fun pun and as so many teens talk by phone and short hand too I thought it would be ok.
