Happy Birthday dear Peggy!!!

My dear friend Peggy just had a birthday yesterday and this is the card that I made for her. My inspiration for this design was from a birthday card by American Greetings that my darling husband gave me years ago.  I had wanted to do something different and this card was a tri-fold and was definitely different from the norm for me!!!  This is what I came up with.

My finished card is 4" x 8 1/2".  Here is a view showing the triple folds.

I had just recently purchased an adorable IO "bow" and decided to use it on the "signature label" and Peggy said it made it look like a package!

I placed this die cut with Peggy's name on it on the envelope.

Peggy loved her card and I loved making it for her.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look and please hurry back!!!
