For a Special Lady

Today is Designers Choice Challenge at The House That Stamps Built and Heather has chosen  "For a Special Lady" and you can go with Mother's Day, sister, friend or how ever you would like to interpret this.  I went with a frilly card that can be used for any occasion:
 

I started with a fun fold, then choose some designer papers from My Minds Eye,  embossed Repeat Impressions  9302-P Cupcakes  in white on coordinating colors, fussy cut and paper pieced it, and  colored the nonpareils colored with gel pens.,   embossed A Happy Hello 9717-C, ,  did a bit of die cutting and added some fun ribbon from my stash.  Below is how the card opens:


I hope you will join this challenge so we can see your creativity and for a chance to win the monthly drawing for a $25 gift certificate to Repeat Impressions, two chances if you use a Repeat Impressions stamp.  My discount code is on the sidebar.

Check out the great designs by my fabulous teammates:
