Another Squigglefly Card

Is this image adorable or what? This image is another from Squigglefly and is called number one. I have really done her up by drawing in the soccer goal and adding grass. Sky is a piece of vellum paper I have had in my stash forever. I pop dotted up her foam hand and cut of her ribbon from image to add a real bow in her hair. The sentiment is from $1Studio G set. I am loving my end result and can see myself using this image over and over. So what do you all think?

Paper: pp- DCWV stack
Ink: Cat's Eye- Chestnut Roan
