This sweet image is from Cute As A Button.  It's called St. Patty's Day Parade.  She is this month's FaceBook Progressive Challenge image in the Cute As A Button FaceBook Group.  I originally coloured the image with a St. Patrick's Day theme, as you can see below, but I wasn't happy.  I had coloured the flag with the colours reversed, so that they were in the right order as you look at the image, but it made me uncomfortable that it meant the colours were actually in the wrong order for an Irish flag, were the flag real and blowing in the wind.  I decided to reprint my image and colour up the flag and balloon without the St. Patrick's Day theme, and turn it into a birthday card instead.  I then stuck the new flag and balloon onto the previous versions.

I have coloured the image with markers and added pearls to her headband and shoes.  My papers are from the Pink & Main My Heart pack.  I've added a broad ribbon and bow, and embellishments from Making Memories.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
