deb's 60th b'day - Oh NO!

Sorry for the very bad photo - am not sure why the flowers have such a washed out look.  This card is already on its way, so I can't re-do it!  I wanted to make a very special card for our daughter's 60th birthday.  (No, I can't believe it!  And, yes it does make me feel a bit older - but she hasn't stopped having another birthday each year!)  This is a front-step card - I was inspired when I saw this beauty - Cheribdesigns.  However, I am sure I did not correctly follow her instructions.  The stamp is one by Northwoods - a yard sale purchase for 25 cents!  The sentiment die is by Sizzix, and the bunnies, butterfly  and flowers from a selection of no-name dies.  I made the base so it opens from the right side, with a computer generated verse inside. This card could illustrate a pastime of gardening - or is it sitting by the mailbox waiting for my latest stamp order?

Super card for your daughter. Mine refuses to budge from 27yrs which means I'm also stuck at 52yrs which suits me just fine!! I looked at the instructions and tried doing that fold myself. You didn't make a mistake as the measurements also needed a score line at 10.5" to make it sit flat. Works fine then. Thankyou for coming and spinning the butterfly wheel this week. Hugs Mrs A.
