Happy 1st Birthday Magnolia Down Under

I wanted to make something bright & cheery for Magnolia Down Under Challenges 1st Birthday and decided to use the gorgeous papers from Basic Grey's June Bug. I attempted a Gate Fold Card, I was inspired by Kellie and Debbie's wonderful Gate Fold creations, but I didn't look at any instructions (silly me) it didn't turn out quite the same, but I have since found some fail safe instructions Kellie posted on her blog by Leann very clear, easy to follow and guarantee a laugh or two, thanks Leann.

Getting back to my card, I used Magnolia Tilda with Balloons from Spring Summer 2008 collection for the front of the card and for the inside Happy Tilda from the new Raising the Ceiling Collection (I love her to bits) sentiment stamps are by Hero Arts. The text "Surprise" inside card was cut with my Cricut Expressions Die Cutting Machine on yellow cs and glittered up with star dust stickles, Balloons smothered in Rock Candy Stickles, Flowers, Silk Ribbon and gems from stash.

Have a wonderful weekend.
