Fun Birthday Card for a kid!

Hello and I hope you are enjoying the last couple days of the year!  We have been hit with several illnesses during the holidays, so we are taking it easy. I am hoping everyone will be set to go back to work and school in the New Year.

Here is a card that I made for a little boy last month. 

I colored the image a while ago with alcohol markers and then added glitter all over with my wink of stella pen.  

Knowing a card is for a child allowed me to use some fun embellishments like these glitter foam stars and the glittery enamel dots. This card did go over well - he thought it was really fun.  

Supplies:  Art Impressions Deep Breath Birthday stamp set, Memento black inks, Specturm Noir markers, Wink of Stella glitter pen, My Mind's Eye Hootenanny 6x6 paper pad, Avery Elle Wonky rectangles dies, embellishments from my stash

I would love to participate in the following challenges:
