Seize the Birthday - Animals

Happy Thursday everyone.  It is time for a new challenge over at Seize the Birthday.  This time the "Toppings" option is "animals".  Remember it is just an option and the only requirement is that it has be birthday.
The image is from Cupids Clear Stamps which I had won quite awhile back and this is my first time using this cute little guy.  I stamped him with Mememto Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with Promarkers.  I paper-pieced the balloons.  All the DSP is from American Crafts Hip, Hip Hooray 6x6 pad.  The sentiment is from SU Happiest Birthday Wishes and cut with a die from SU Bitty Banners Dies, and mounted with foam tape.  The mats are SU Strawberry Slush and Coastal Cabana.  The small mat is cut with a Lil' Inkers Stitched Rounded Rectangle die.  The large scallop mat is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.  The card base is MFT Smooth White.

I am also entering this in the Just Us Girls challenge which is "Paper-Piecing", as I paper-pieced the balloons.

And also the I Love Promarkers challenge - Paper-Piecing.
