It's my birthday and I'll cry if I want to...

but I don't. Yep, today's the day! Double nickel for me - feeling great, blessed in so many ways.

Today's card was inspired by the challenge found in the most recent TechniqueJunkie newsletter. The techniques I used are Bingo Blast (A/M '09), Salt & Pepper (June '04) and Marker Tapping (Feb '10). The little girl is from I Brake For Stamps, the sentiment is by Endless Designs. The oval plain & scalloped dies are Spellbinders. The tiny flowers on her hat were made with a hand punch; the candles are a thumb punch. I colored the little girl with plain old colored pencils. I did accent the little girl's tears with the Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen; the flower centers are Ranger Stickles (Black Diamond). I have no idea what line of paper I used-not a name brand, that I do know.

Hope your day will be as special as mine!
