Aunt Doris' 91st Birthday

Today's card is for my aunt's 91st birthday which is on Valentine's Day!  You would never know she is 91...hope I'm in as good as health as she is when I'm that age (If I make it that long!).  I chose BUGBDAYBIRD4 from Bugaboo Stamps...she was one of my winnings from their Holiday Chaos challenges.  I colored her with copics, yellow stickles on her eyelids, and glossy accents on the balloons.  Layout is Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps February 2017 Sketch and January Color Challenge at Catch the Bug.  She is cut out with Lawn Fawn large stitched oval die, mat was cut out on my Cameo and Stampin' Up! banner framlit dies.  Dark gray cs from my stash and DP from My Minds Eye 6x6 Happy Birthday pad.
