A Different Fold

Hello Friends,

I had a busy day, but I did manage to make one more birthday card last night just before bed. Actually, I stayed up late because I just had to try this new (to me) fold that I saw on my friend's blog. You can see her post here, with a link to the tutorial.
I had the flower panels as well as the die cut and inked up bird stamp (2005 SU) image in my stash for a few years and I finally got around to using them. I originally made the flowers from a (Hampton Art) stamp which I embossed and cut out. The leaves are die cuts. The Happy Birthday is also a (Stampendous) stamp. I think my papers are K&Company, but I'm not 100% sure. I coloured the stamped bird with water colour pencils.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs & smiles,
Teresa
