Congratulations - Birthday Card

Here is a birthday card I made to enter the following two challenges:

1) Mama Elephant's May Challenge - Make ME say "Oooh, that's pretty"
2) CAS-ual Fridays: CFC139 - Our 4th Birthday!

And here is the finished card:

I stamped the bunny and balloon bunch (from Mama Elephant's Up and Away set) on the white cardstock. I also stamped the "congratulations" (from Mama Elephant's Bountiful Blessings set) at the bottom of the white cardstock. Then, I colored the bunny and balloon bunch with Copic markers. For the sky background, I water colored it with Distress ink pads mixing orange and turquoise colors. I love the combination effect of Copic & watercolor. I also applied the clear Wink of Stella pen on the balloons to add a shimmery look. I cut the top portion of the background with a cloud shape (free-hand cut). For the turquoise card, I applied some white pigment ink on top of it to make it more like the sky. Finish the card by mounting the white cardstock with foam tapes on the turquoise card to make it dimensional. Below is a side look of the card:
