UGH! I keep having this issue with Liberation Sans in Inkscape. I pick 
Liberation Sans, and it definitely LOOKS like Liberation sans, but then 
it somehow switches itself to Bitstream Vera or Luxi Sans when I copy it 
(in the font dropdown! It's the weirdest, most annoying thing!)

I don't get what's going on there. I will have to pay more attention to 
the SVG output and edit by hand.

+1. Also, the larger balloon on the left looks like someone got hungry 
and took a bite out of its left side, so that needs some touching up, 
and I think the clouds could be tweaked to look a little nicer.
