Introducing Oskar on the occasion of his Centenary!

For my card today I have used Introducing Oskar from Mo's Digital PencilHe was just perfect to make this card for my FIL's 100th birthday. 

I coloured Oskar with alcohol markers and used lots of dies to jazz up my card.  I asked Mo first if it was OK to add some balloon strings to this image.  Generally, artists don't like you messing with their images but she kindly gave her permission which enabled me to attach these fun numbered Avery Elle balloons.  The Happy Birthday Banner dies are by Poppy Stamps and are strung on a Marianne Design string diecut.   I also used a Papertrey Ink tag die and some Alphabet dies.   Even Oskar is printed on a die cut rectangle.  I used a Simon Says stitched die manipulated between cuts to get the longer shape I needed.  Papers are by Nitwit and Craftwork Cards.

We have an "Anything Goes theme with a Mo Manning image" at Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge and we would love for you to play along. There are prizes!!!
 And check out Mo's other sites where there is lots of inspiration from my teamies.
