Heart Balloons and Roses

I had some time last night to color up this cutie, and decided to turn it into a card today.


The cute cat is from one of Penny Black's new stamp sets from the Love and Friendship collection "Share a Hug", available in my Etsy shop
I used my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils blended with baby oil on this image, and then fussy cut. The background was quickly made by masking off a hill and inking it up with distress inks. I used a couple cloud masks to create clouds. 
The "happy birthday" sentiment is from an old Penny Black stamp set, the "Love" circle is from the new "Posted with Love" sentiment set, also available in my Shop.
