Fusion Anniversary!!

I am so happy to be joining the throngs to wish those fabulous gals at Fusion a very happy 1st anniversary!  I love this challenge and usually choose to fuse the photo and sketch... here is our wonderful inspiration this week:
 ... but this time, I was really drawn to the sketch... I had this little birdy tweeting my name:

Mama Elephant birdy; my old pal Benjamin Moore; a tiny note from Wplus9; and a SSS balloon die.
 
Inside sentiment:
"...to tell you how much color you add to my life! 
Thanks, and Happy Anniversary!"
 
Happiest of anniversaries... nothing like the first, sure there will be many, many more to celebrate... hope to be around for all of them! =]

Getting help from Benjamin Moore, you clever girl. This is so colorful and sweet, Michele. I love all the detail.

Yet another dazzling card to bring a smile to my face! Brilliant way to incorporate the paint cards (hmmm...perhaps I should get a few to supplement my current 'white cardstock only' situation...), Please share this at Inkspirational, too...sooooo utterly sweet!
