Happy Birthday Chelsea

So... my best friend, my sister, my right arm, my ponga is celebrating her birthday today.  I wish like no other I could be there with her celebrating. 
Those of you who know Chelsea know that she's always been referred to as short.  (Really she's only an inch shorter than I am but she owns it) My husband who is 6'6" refers to her as a smurf so hence the following card I made for her.

I found these adorable smurf images at and I knew I had to make her a card. 
I welded 2 images of the mushroom house to make a card base.  I'm ecstatic how it turned out and can't wait until she sees it in person.

Inside the house I cut out smurfette and put her in as a nice little surprise. 

For the house:
I used brown cardstock for the base of the card, then layered tan, white and red for the rest of the mushroom
I chalked the door with tan around the edge then ran it through my cuttlebug to add wood design.  I took a dark brown chalk and went over the raised wood to add more texture.
I added little cloth flowers around the window and a Happy Birthday sentiment from Jaded Blossom.

She was pretty simple with layered cardstock colors
I did add pearls to her ears and atyou spika glitter to her blonde locks.

Chelsea - I wish you nothing but the best today and forever!
