Let's Party!

Hi everyone
A very happy Monday to you all.
I saw this freebie image over at Karen's Doodles which she gave out for reaching 100 followers - and couldn't resist him.  His name is Bigsby and Karen has quite a few images featuring Bigsby - so why not hop on over and take a look.
Anyhow, here is the card I made using Bigsby:

I followed the sketch at Friday Sketchers and I used an embossed card for the backing and cut a semi circle from pink DP from a Hot Off the Press pad called Garnet.  I stamped the word celebrate in purple onto the pink DP.  I coloured him in using my watercolour pencils, promarkers and sakura gelly glaze pens.  I added some peel off's to indicate the year (and an exclamation mark).  I made the confetti sparkly by adding two different coloured glitters, and added a border of balloons using my ordinary word package and then mounted the image on to the same purple card I used for the backing.  I added starry peel offs around the edge and finished it all off with a handpunched flower from three different papers to compliment the image colours.  Here is a close up so that you can see the glitter.
