Happy Birthday Friend Screen Divider Card

I love fun folds and making a screen divider card allows the designer to have fun on all four flaps of this card. I started with a 12 x 8 piece of embossed cardstock from Coor'dinations and scored at 3. 6 and 9 inches. I punched the top with a large present border punch from Martha Stewart and punched the bottom with a Stampin' up label punch. The front is a blue foil cardstock that was embossed with an embossing folder from Embossalicious and then sanded. I added a "friend" diecut  from Paper Smooches. I die cut Classy Girl and her shopping bag accessories from Creative Time, then created a shopping bag money holder to match. The circular word dies are from IO Dies. I punched happy birthday with another Martha Stewart punch and left the floral piece blank for a personal greeting and signature. I did a little sponging and added a couple gems to complete the card. The folded card fits into a business sized envelope.

This is what the card looks like closed and from the top:


I am entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at 613 Avenue Create and Scribble and Scrap.
