Don't Make Me Use My Opera Voice

Tonight is a friend's birthday party.  Guess what she is getting from me!  A boat load of cards!!!  :)  I made this one as her "personal" card from me.  She is a singer.  In fact, the year my daughter won a voice lesson scholarship from a local music group (when she was 17), this particular lady won the adult award for singing the exact same opera song.  Ha!  Go figure!  So, I thought this would be fitting for her.  :)  The image is a Rick St. Dennis image called "OpERa Digi Stamp".  The sentiment is from a Create With TLC set made to go with Rick's image.  The set is called "I Sing Therefore I am".  I added the words "Happy Birthday" below the sentiment.  The paper is also from Create With TLC.

Isn't she awesome?  I water painted her using a water paint brush and chalk.  And accented with glitter gel pens.

Thanks for looking!
