Birthday balloons

This is a QKR Stampede image -- he comes with the balloons spelling out I LOVE YOU, but in this case, I wanted them to be a bit more birthday, so just cut some blue dotted swiss paper to cover them over - and I do like how they turned out.   A bit of faux stitching/doodling to outline the image a bit, a couple brads added to the corner and a pretty bow/ribbon added to it all.  I'm needing a couple boy birthday cards for June, so this takes care of one of those.
I would like to enter these challenges:

QKR Stampede - child's birthday
Allsorts - birthday
Aud Sentiments - cute with a sentiment
Come and Get It - tic-tac-toe (design paper, sentiment, 2 or more layers)
Crafting by Designs - sentiment
Crafting from the Heart - AG
Crafty Catz - kids
Digi Choosday - add a bow
Eureka Stamps - for the boys
Inky Impressions - faux stitching/doodling
Sister Act Card Challenge - AG
The Paper Girls - party theme
