Fairy Sweet Birthday

Hello Loves!
It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week it's Fancy Folds!  We want to see your creations that include more than 1 fold!  So start making those gate folds, and Z folds, and easel cards now, cuz we have a fabulous sponsor this week that you are going to love!!
That's right!  Little Darlings Rubber Stamps is our sponsor this week!  Woot woot!  The winner will receive a $15 gift voucher to their shop...now who doesn't want to win that?  Lol!

LDRS provided our design team with some stamps to use on our projects this week.
I went a little crazy with my card, but only because it is a birthday card for the wonderful mother-in-law so I wanted it to be special :)
 I went with a gate fold for my fancy folds card.  I've done a lot of easels lately and wanted to try something different.  There was this awesome idea I found at From My Craft Room to use a die cut to cut out a window in the middle of the card!  I loved the cards she made that way, so thought I would give it a shot.  And I love it!

Of course, I was a little stumped with the papers...I love this blue fuzzy paper, but because it already has detail of it's own, I wasn't sure what to add to it.  So I stuck with flowers...those go with everything right?  Especially when the center image is this gorgeous Fairy Wishes from Saturated Canary!!
I colored her in with my pencils and added glitter to her wings.  She was a blast coloring!!
 All of my flowers are handmade.  There are a few large rolled roses in the centers, and then some smaller punched roses around them.  Along with some blue daisy's and some fillers.  I misted both sprays with some shimmer mist so that they sparkled.

Since the inside of the card is still a main focal point of the card, I wanted to add something that could be used for writing a message on.  So I added a pocket behind the image so I could have a pull out tab there.
And printed off a fun little birthday sentiment :)
The card doesn't really stay closed but that's ok since it will look great on display!

I really hope you will join us this week!  You can use any images/stamps you wish and make any project you would like!  Remember there is a limit of 3 entries per person, but that still offers a great chance to win this awesome prize!
