I had alot of fun with this card - great image and great sketch.

The card is for the following challenges:
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Sketch 200
Outlawz Challenge - CFC
Glitter n Sparkle - Buttons

The card uses two DP from my stash - had them for ages too!  I coloured some silver peel off border stickers using a red copic marker to highlight the diagonal line.  The image is from Anne Fenton and is one of the freebies associated with the Outlawz Challenge above.  I coloured the image using copic markers.  I then found three buttons that co-ordinated with the balloons to add to the card as embellishments.

The sketch that I followed for this card is this one:

I liked the layout of the sketch so pretty much followed as it is just reversing the diagonals - I didn't want the buttons to get lost in the spots!
