Birthday parade PBSC Week 33

I did this stamp for a two-fold mission: For the PB Weekly Challenge (week 33) and for my baby girl's 32nd birthday in February. I love this stamp. It's a bit large, though, for the challenge. I'm not sure I'm happy with the way it turned out.
I colored the image with Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol, and applied Stickles to the balloon, the candle, and to the little dots around the cake. Doesn't show up very well in the picture. I put tiles around the bottom of the frame, and pink rhinestones at the upper corners. I put a contrasting strip and ribbon across the top. It just seems to be lacking something. I think I'm so used to multiple layering that this card seems a little plain, I guess. Give me your feedback and let me know what you think!
Thanks a bunch for lookin'!
