Allsorts 420 - Birthday Boy

Saturday again and I am back with a card for the new Allsorts challenge. Wendy is our hostess this week and she chose the theme of "Birthday Boy". I decided to use one of my Penny Black animal stamps and used traditional boy colors for coloring.
 The image has been heat embossed on Winsor and Newton Watercolor marker paper and colored using Zig Clean Color Brush pens. Still loving these markers very much, not sure how I managed to color before I had them, but my copics and pencils are sitting mostly unused on the shelve now. 

The image is large and just about fills the whole card front, so I kept the card simple by just adding some torn blue paper and the stamped sentiment. A few candy dots were added for a little fun factor. They remind me of confetti. Paper piercing was done next to the sentiment before adhering the card to the base. 

Wendy has a  fun stamp set to give away this week, hope you come join us for a chance to win!

I'd also like to enter my card here:
