40th birthday card


I've done it again - started a card for Just Cute Bears 'multifold' challenge and missed the deadline, oops! Oh well, I needed to make this one anyway. I got the idea for the fold from Kerry's blog. Apologies for all the photos, but it was a bit tricky getting a decent pic of this one.

I've used a new and fabulous image from Di's Digi Downloads, available here - just when I think the images can't get any better or cuter, Di draws something even more gorgeous! I've coloured the image with promarkers, papers are Papermania with Papermill cardstock. The numbers were a free template from imag-e-nation, printed onto cardstock and then covered with matching paper. Sentiment label cut with a nellie snellen die, letter tiles are Doodlebug, blue fibres from my stash.


I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
