Magnolialicious Birthday Card

It's been a while, but I have finally got something new to share. I give full credit for this creation to the Magnolia-licious Challenge blog color challenge and their DT member Eulanda. I liked her card so much that I copied her layout. Here are the pics:
I don't have any gray DP, So I had to use one that is kind of bluish-gray. I sprayed the card base with Mr. Huey Shine glimmer mist. It gives a silvery, metallic sheen to the paper. The die cut is by spellbinders. The stamp is Happy Spring Tilda by Magnolia Stamps. Her dress is colored with copic cool grays. The ballon stamp is one from Hero Art. I also used the grays on them and then cut out just the balloons. There are 3 sets of the balloons on this card. The balloon strings are silver metallic curling ribbon that I cut in half because it was to wide. I attached them to the backs of the balloons with glue dots and used a piece of the ribbon to tie a bow around them. The coloring on the strings is just a reflection of my shirt. I also sprayed the balloons with Mr. Huey shine. It really made them sparkle. Foam squares to the balloons and Tilda add dimension. I also used cinnamon Stickles around Tilda's oval frame and diamond stickles to her dress. I hope you like her!
Here are the challenges I entered:

Annette, I just love this project. It is SO different and interesting. The grays kind of give it a "black and white photo" effect, which is so cool. Amazing project! Thanks for sharing your project at CDAC for the Anything goes challenge.
