A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Animals

It's time  for a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge, this time our theme is "Animals", so nice and easy to play along.  I decided to use Little Millie's Birthday, from the Pink Gem store, for my DT card, colouring the image with Promarkers and highlighting it with a touch of Star Dust Stickles.
 The patterned paper is from a geriatric Dovecraft pack called A Piece of Cake, to which I added some dark brown and pink pearl cardstock.  The die used to cut the sentiment is Dovecraft too, I picked it up at The Range really cheap when I was on holiday.
The main topper was cut out with a Spellbinders Curved Rectangles die, and I inked the edges of this, the backing paper and some of the die cuts with Ground Espresso Distress Ink.  The cupcakes and balloon were die cut with dies from my Xcut Birthday Party set.
The final touch was to add three star shaped gems around the sentiment.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -

Aud Sentiments - #160 - Anything Goes + a Sentiment
