FCCB Challenge Me Monday #60, Stampin with the Dragon Recipe and Sketch Challenge, and SweetStamps Challenge 15

The Challenge Me Monday #60 at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog started off with awesome DT member examples.  Way to go DT!  Beautiful Projects!
My submission for the challenge is a layout that highlights a birthday party for my daughter when she was 3 years, that's been 13 years ago.  That year, my BFF Teresa (who I've known since I was 3 myself) and I made and decorated McKenzie's cake.  It was a fun experience with awesome results.  McKenzie still remembers that cake to this day and says how much she loved it! I'm sure the pictures help to remind her, too.

I was totally amped about the challenge that Stampin with the Dragon posted for the Recipe and Sketch challenge on Friday, May 13, 2011.  Why????  Because I knew I wanted to use one of Stampin Dragon Designs beautiful images titled Rupert's Party I purchased recently.  I had to make a Birthday Card for my Mom and the challenge gave me a great sketch to work with.  Hop on over and link up your creation...and don't forget to have fun!  This card also fit the requirements of SweetStamps Challenge 15, so wowzers, that's bomb diggity, huh?!?

Here is my submission (When viewing, please keep in mind this is my first coloring job ever on a digi stamp.  However, I do prefer honest criticism and advice.  I don't have Copics, yet, so I use Sugarloaf Whispers Strokes Dual Tip Brush Markers):
