Sweet Wishes for Debbie - FFFC #94

Hello! Happy Friday!

It's a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog.  And this time,'s my turn to host it.  For the theme, I've chosen...More Than One Fold or Fancy Folds (e.g. gate-fold cards, tri-shutter cards, side-step cards, stair-step cards, diamond-fold cards, etc.).  I just love the not-so-ordinary cards and I'm hoping I'll get to see a type of folds that I haven't seen before and I get something new to play around with...LOL.  Anyway, for more details on the challenge and how to join in the fun, hop over to Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. Have a look at the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created for inspirations. 

For my DT card, I am showing you this birthday card that I made for my friend Debbie down under in Aussie land--hope she liked it.  This first view is of just the card front when the card is all folded up.

When opened it's a type of a tri-shutter card.    

It's not of the more popular basic tri-shutter card.  This one has different cuts and folds giving me a full panel for the card front. 

I am featuring a couple of adorable Tilda images from Magnolia:

- Tilda With Little Pocket from the With Love Collection 2013
- Tilda With Love from the With Love Collection 2013

Diana's on-line store, Magnolia-licous, is an excellent source for your Magnolia stamps.  Diana carries a large selection of both the full size and mini stamps.  And if you don't see the particular one you are looking for, contact Diana and ask her if she can bring it in for you. 
Check out the selection of Wee Stamps by Sylvia Zet, and Wild Rose Studio stamps.
Prices are discounted.  Along with excellent customer service, you get to earn 2% in-store credit of every order which you can apply to future purchases.  Sweet!
