Gatefold card

Hello everyone :)

I was going to finish this card off tomorrow but couldn't resist doing it today!
I followed Leann's tutorial.  I've done a gate card before but it was bigger.  I really like the size of this one.
The photos will have a lovely yellowish tinge to them as it is evening!

I didn't realise I had this paper!!!!  I love it!!  I also tried to do some shading on Annika's hair, from far away I think it looks ok.  I have embossed the paper with dots and the sentiment is computer made.

I am entering this for:
A spoon full of sugar - Recipe of 1 pattern paper,1 Embossing,1 Button,1 Ribbon.
 Abc Challenge - N is for NEW (the stamp is pretty new to me and the paper)
Allsorts Challenge - Get Distressed with button/s and a bow.
Crafty Cardmakers - Some digi on the card (Sentiment)
Cute Card thursday Spots and Dots (embossed dots or maybe spots?)
Belli Challenge - Ribbon!
S2G - Use the word Birthday
Lexis creations - Spots or Stripes (I have a spotty embossed background)
Magical crafts - Something for kids (Annika always reminds me of a school girl with her books!)

A lot of challenges!!!  I think i'm making up for not making a card for the past few days.

Now I must go and do some uni work.

Don't forgot to check out my candy Here!
