Happy Birthday, Ewe!

Happy World Card Making Day, bloggers! Are you celebrating my crafting your booties off today?! I've been crafting all week, in honor of it, and got myself a head start! LOL

Today, we have a new challenge at Catch The Bug - This is everyone's favorite, and perfect for World Card Making Day! Our challenge them is Anything Goes! *Applause* I know, I know - Everyone loves it. So do I!  Of course, as usual, there are great prizes up for grabs, from Bugaboo Stamps, so come over to Catch The Bug and link up with us in our Anything Goes challenge, in honor of World Card Making Day!  You are welcome to link up any project - It doesn't have to be a card - So get crafting!

In honor of World Card Making Day, I've created a fancy Fold Card.  This is yet another version of pop up card.  You can see, in the first pic, that the card has a pull tab, which pops up the image.  Check out the second pic, with the image popped up after the tab is pulled.  So cool, isn't it?! I have to say, I absolutely LOVE the fold on this card.  I went with masculine colors because I made this for a male friend's birthday (He thought it was awesome, by the way!)  I used chevron printed washi tape, purple square gemstones and round purple gemstones. My card uses uses the image Make It Snappy - Birthday Ewe, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The sentiment is handwritten with a white opaque pen by Signo.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
