A Card for Mia - Inkspirations Sketch 55

Hello,

Here I am back as promised (can you believe it???) with a birthday card for lovely little Mia who turns four this week. Mia is the daughter of a good friend of ours and I absolutely, completely cannot believe she is turning four as I truly feel like she was born just yesterday. Is that a sign that I'm getting older?

So for my card I decided to use this week's sketch challenge by the girls over at Inkspirations. Here is the sketch:
 
 The idea for this card popped straight into my head and I used this card by the fabulous Teneale Williams for inspiration yet again. I LOVE this little penguin and the beautiful, bright Sweet and Sour DSP.....oooh and the shiny balloons.
Enough babbling now, here is my card:
And here is the inside:
