Happy Birthday, Tonya!

Happy happy happy birthday to my friend, Tonya!  Tonya is a kooky gal who makes me laugh.  She's also my enabler with her store, The Heart Desires.  THD has been open just a few months and has been a dream of Tonya's for a long while.  May all your wildest dreams come true, Tonya!

For the card I die cut the Smitten Kitten designer paper -- love those pierced edges and Tonya loves pink so how could I not use this paper.  Then I stamped and colored up the fairy.  It's easier to see in person but the yellow I added to the blue shade of her tunic and underskirt lend them an iridescent look.  The wings are sparkled up with some Wink of Stella too.  She is a fairy after all.  I next masked her off and sponged fluffy clouds using my homemade cloud mask.  The best part of the card tho?  It lights up!  Look at her glowing wand when you press her skirt.  Such a fun surprise!

You should have arrived here from Laura and are next hopping over to Kimberly to see what she designed in celebration of Tonya's big day!
