London themed birthday card

Hey everybody :)

The sun is shining here again, so I'm going to post this then go outside with my book and get me some sun! My skin is so pale at this stage I'm fairly sure it glows in the dark. And I'm all for getting some natural Vitamin D, my poor bones could use it.

So here's my card, I hope you like it, the idea came into my head, so I got it down on paper before it melted away again.

I stamped the girl and her balloons twice, and cut one out and coloured it in, then stuck it on the other one with foam pads for a 3D effect. The image and sentiment are LOTV, I made the bunting myself and the little gem on her bow is from Wild Orchid Crafts, from whom I received my latest package today, the postman is always bewildered to find me waiting at the door to collect the post of a morning!

A closeup of the image, it's hard to tell that she's on foam pads, but she is :P I coloured her with Promarkers.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Thanks for looking :)
Have a lovely sunny day!
