Special Window birthday with Pals Paper Arts Colours#313

The new in colours are so pretty and the colour challenge at PPA this week is just perfect for a special birthday card I need for today.

I have made another magic window card and will post a tutorial with the CASEing the Catty card this Sunday (August 14). I have made lots of these in the past and you can see some more samples here.

The card is closed with a belly band and as you open the card the sliding mechanism opens to reveal the message in the window.

Detail of the cluster on the belly band.

As you open the gate fold

The little cluster of flowers is made using swirly bird, and the leaf spray is fussy cut from the DSP sheet from the Fruit Stand collection.

The sliding mechanism slowly opening.
I coloured the White glimmer paper numbers using a sponge dauber and the Flirty Flamingo ink. The numbers are cut using the now retired Bigz Die and worked well for this card as they are much finer than the big numbers framelits- and 50 years deserves pink champagne don't you think?

Thanks for looking today,
Remember to check back tomorrow for the tutorial, this one is 4 x4 inches and has a matching envelope.

thanks for looking,
