Zig Zag Card - Happy Birthday Helen


Are you singing Cathy?  Sorry couldn't resist. :-)
This is the card I made for my good friend Helen who had her birthday last Sunday.  First time I have attempted a double zig zag card, they are such fun.  I used Mariannes wonderful tutorial here.  I started with Stampin Up (SU) Naturals White card stock and put my SU Simply Scored too to great use.  I must say I do love how easy it is to do scoring with this board.  Actually this card is a very Stampin Up card.  I used my SU scalloped edged border punch.  Next cut all the pieces of paper and cardstock which happen to be a pack of SU Design paper I won a little while ago.  The inside of the card I added this wonderful cake image from The Paper Shelter which was coloured with Copics used my darling daughter.  Yes, I was running out of time and she had been looking for something to do.  The green piece where the cake has been added is actually a flap that lifts to reveal a message.


I would like to share this in the following challenges:
