Dots, Stripes and/or Gingham for Allsorts Challenge

I am back today with my card for our new theme at Allsorts challenge. Mervi is hosting this week and she chose theme of "Gingham, Stripes or Dots". Some of my favorite patterns and they are always a nice addition on cards. Hope you can join us this week!

This cute image is one from Penny Black (No. 4137K), and old wood mounted stamp, unfortunately I cannot find a link to it anywhere at the moment - not even eBay. Just some simple pencil coloring done here using Faber Castell Polychromos pencils.

The banner is from the Penny Black set Let's Go Wild stamped with one of the blue Distress inks (I didn't pay attention which one I had so I can't tell you for sure what color it was) and the sentiments are from the Penny Black set Snippets. I brushed some clear Wink of Stella glitter over the balloons, flowers and party hat to make them sparkle. The striped paper border came from and old Stampin Up stamp kit (Paper Pumpkin).

I can't believe the glitter is actually visible this time, not always easy to capture on camera.
