Friends are a gift.. :-)

Hey peeps,

Back with another card..  Just on a spree of completing ll the backlog I have managed to compile because of the exhibition.. SO studiously pouring over my unfinished cards and working on them.. :-)..

 This card I had seen while participating in one of the blog hops.. I don't remember which one but the lady;s card was my favorite amongst all the cards and I had promptly noted down all the instructions because it was an unusual fold and I LOVE unusual folds...

This card started of for someone.. then I decided no I'd give it to another one and then another.. Ultimately I kind of forgot who I wanted to give the card to... Good thing also.. Did not complete it as it it... Anyways enough of ramblings... You guys just look at the card.. :-)



The fold of the card really appealed to me... It's like uncovering a lot of layers.. Like in a person when you meet.. We have so many layers to our personalities and as we become better friends, we uncover something new about one another.. This card had actually started for Tejal, sorry Tee.. I dropped the idea mid-way.. And then went to a hoard of people before I decided to give it to bestie # 2... :-)... She really is a dear soul...

Now some more views of the cards... 





This is with the ribbon untied.. I have tried tying bows.. I am kind of getting the technique and can see an improvement in my bows.. Not as good as E.T's but definitely improving.. :D...



 This is how it looks when the windows open.. (windows remind me of some really silly statements made by my bio teacher way back in school.. She's be like.. Girls.. open the windows and let the atmosphere come in and we'd be like :-o.. *LOL*)....


A close-up of the cutie image.. :-)...



The full open view of the card.. :-)... Now some close-ups of the individual panel.... *wink*



The sentiment says it all..






Love the deco shells border... :-)...

The blue metallic card stock is locally bought.. Some great colors in the metallic finish.. Shiny and Bright..  The fronta panel has Echo Park splash PP which I got from Ujjwal.. The windows have Bo Bunny Ad Lib papers from karuna's store... The insides have PPs from Hobby Ideas...The digi image is a freebie I found while searching for images on Google...The die cut flowers are from Itsy Bitsy have been embossed and layered.. the leaves and ferns were a RAK from priya.. Thanks girl... The ribbon's from my stash... The PTI butterfly has been traced and cut... Flower centres have Pie Lane glitter balls and so do the butterflies.. On the inside, The die-cuts have again been traced and hand cut.. The sentiment is from a MICIA stamp set I won in the ICR DT celebrations sponsored by Karuna and inked using a MICIA rainbow inkpad again given by Karuna.. The MS deco shells punch to complete the card.. :-) *Phew*... In case I missed something and you noticed.. Just drop in a comment and I will let you know...!!!
