Happy Birthday to Wendy of Repeat Impressions!

I am so grateful to the special companies who share their stamps with me so I can have fun designing and blogging with them! Repeat Impressions was the first company and challenge blog to choose me to be part of their design team and I still love designing with their high quality rubber stamps! Today is the birthday of the owner of Repeat Impressions, Wendy Wyman.  I created this card for her because she liked the other building block card I made recently for a challenge at their blog here.  The front is vellum over a dotted yellow cardstock. I colored the robin, leaves and branch with my copics from the back. The real fun happens when you open the card:

I decorated the steps of the center with Repeat Impression's Happy Bird-day Flip Set. I learned how to make a Building Block card from this tutorial on Splitcoast. It is the hardest of the new fun folds I have learned lately, but if you can measure all the specific 1/8th measurements, it creates a fun card. I sent it to Wendy and am wishing her a Happy Birthday and year to come!
