Window Gatefold Card

Another month and few more special birthday cards to make.  The first is for a friend's 70th birthday this week, so I thought I'd use one of my Lavinia stamps and enter it for this month's challenge 'Birthday Girl'.  I guess you're never too old to be a birthday girl!  I decided to make a gatefold card with an aperture to show off the lovely stamped image, which I coloured in with Promarkers. I used a silver Wink of Stella glitter brush pen to paint the wings to add a bit of sparkle. Although I've made gatefold cards before, I wanted to make it a little bit different and I was really pleased how it turned out.
