Happy Birthday, daughter

I had not forgotten our daughter's birthday, but the day is sneaking up fast!  Time to get it in the mail.  She will be 54 - I told her some time ago to stop having birthdays but she paid no attention.  I hope she likes this - when she was little green was a favorite color.
Can some one help with the origin of the image?  It has been in my "partly colored" stash for a while - easy to finish the green shutters and pots.  I used Prismas for that part, and sparkly gel pens for the flowers and leaves.  The main green bg is Paper Pizzaz, and none of the other is marked.  The sentiment is part of a JustRite birthday set.  I stamped in black and highlighted with a gold gel pen.  I had not tried that before, and I am happy with the result.  I once again used Nesties to cut it out.  I added a bit of ribbon and some Pizzazz Aplenty tear drop pearls.
