C4C Digi Birthday

It's been a long time since I created something, and I was so happy to get a chance to play today.  This is my take on this week's C4C challenge which is a sketch designed by Silke Ledlow, one of my favorite paper craft artists.  Here is the sketch:
I had purchased this adorable Pure innocence digi image some time ago from Heather Ellis.  When I saw Silke's sketch, I thought of this image right away and I went to work.  For my color scheme, I used this week's Color Throwdown#134 - Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive and Marina Mist.

These colors immediately put me in mind of an SU Sale-a-Bration bundle I recently purchased - Ice Cream Parlor DSP & Quick Accents Pack.  The DSP that I used from the pack has all of the challenge colors.  The solid, horizontal strips are embossed with SU's Square Lattice EF. 

My birthday girl is paper pieced and colored with Copics.  Her shoes are cut from SU's new red glitter paper.  I wish I had shoes like that...  For my accent piece, I used PTI's Love Lives Here for the scalloped circle, and Butterfly Dreams for the sentiment.
