Celebrate Your Special Day - FFFC #177

Hello.  Happy Friday.

We're starting a new challenge at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  Our challenge for the next fornight is being hosted by the lovely Annie and the theme she has chosen is 'A Different Fold/Shaped Cards.'  I love fancy-fold cards and I have just the card for this challenge.  Don't forget to pop over to the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge for complete details and to see the fabulous card that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to join us.

I wanted to make another lever card, but instead of the regular square lever/centre panel, I used a shaped die for it (Go Kreate Square Frame Frilly #10).

Opening the card shows how the centre panel acts like a 'lever' that fits the window on the card front.

A closer look a the two Magnolia Stamps images being featured.

- Celebration Tilda from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection 2012

- Tilda with Straw Hat from the Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011
