DD's Birthday card

Good Evening!!  Today's share is a Birthday card I made for my DD.  Its kind of like a CD folder.  I've only got 2 of the three sides showing in this post, the other side is folded back with our personal message to her on it. 

The left side is an opening that will eventually hold a photo;  the darling Build a Bear image  lifts up and has a separate area for another photo.  Both these flaps held gift certificates for DD, one for an event of which we'll take pictures of and then place them in the card for a keepsake.

The main card base is Regal Rose complimented with Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip cardstocks.  I've hoarded this designer paper for quite some time now and was happy to use it for someone special like DD! I also adore anything Build a Bear and have so much fun colouring these images in!!   I must never have outgrown the love of using crayolas, only now my "tools" for colouring are so much more expensive than crayons! :-) 

The daisy is die cut with the Big Shot, as is the large scalloped circle.  The button is from my stash but I thought it matched the dsp quite nicely.  I also used the eyelet border punch along with the scalloped & circle punches.

The "Enjoy" is what holds the card closed.  I've placed one part of the magnet underneath the designer paper; the opposite side of the magnet is sandwiched in between the circles with a piece of chocolate satin ribbon that is adhered behind the last page of the card, again underneath the designer paper.

Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful tomorrow :-)
