Squiggle Fly Birthday Card Challenge-Cheryl Alger

I just love the creations by Cheryl Alger at Squiggle Fly..When I saw this new release, it just called to me to make a card!  Here you will see a Tri-fold card from bright pink cardstock- I "hung" the triple matted image over the front edge of the card to make an opening flap and used the same pink paisley patterned paper you see in the background under the image. You can see the second layer of the card where I used green bubbled handmade paper and stamped a birthday cake image with a cluster of green flossed buttons.  Then the inside of the card is lined again with the paisley with a die cut writing area.  I think I will have to get some more of her kids online-they are so darn cute! This card was entered into their Birthday card challenge http://squigglefly.blogspot.com/ and I'm also entering it in the Sunday's with Crissy challenge @ http://sundayswithcrissy.blogspot.com/, CTO's challenge @ http://celebratetheoccasion.blogspot.com/  and Desert Islands Craft Challenge using the categories of Birthday theme/Presents/and Bright Colors @ http://desertislandcraftschallenge.blogspot.com/ .All of these sites have great challenges going on! Also this is going to Bunny Zoe's Crafts Challenge at
