Happy Birthday to ME!!!!

Yes....today is my birthday and I just thought I'd give a little shout out to myself....LOL!!!
I recently bought myself a few birthday presents and one of them was a Score-pal....WOW, it ever cool....I've had so much fun with it already in the short time I've had it.
This is a double accordian gate fold card that I made using my new found toy....I used a 5 1/2" x 12" piece of double sided paper to make this card. I scored the folding lines at 2", 4" 8" and 10".
This little gate fold card instructions were right on the back of the package it came in....but there are loads more designs at Score-pal.com I will be visiting there and making more fun folded cards.
For the tag and the butterflies and tag on this card I used my Cricut Wedding and Home Accents Solutions cartridges....the tag slides out to write your message.
I used some yummy pink and turquoise rhimestones ont he butterflies for a little bling!!
On the inside of the card I printed Happy Birthday to You over and over on white cardstock, trimmed it down to size and then ran it thru my music sheet Cuttlebug folder. After I decorated it the way I wanted it....I closed it up and tied a big ole yummy pink ribbon around it. This would be a great card for someone special who likes to display your handy work for all to see. I'm sure this won't be the last one of these I make!! THANK YOU for stopping by to see me today.

HAPPY B-DAY!! How come we didn't know??? You were so sweet to let us all know that Regina's b-day is tomorrow (which I'll post her b-day card this weekend to make sure that she's gotten before I post it...)

But on to your card, very pretty and looks like you have the score pal under your belt. You did an awesome job. Love the rhinestones on the butterflies!
