Birthday Greetings

Hi!  It's time for another What If Wednesday Challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week it is a Designer Choice and the challenge is to make a card with more than one fold.  My card is sort of a flip card.  A while ago, someone gave me a whole bunch of card making supplies and there were a bunch of these blank card bases cut and folded in the stash.  So far, this is only the second one I've used, but I have really liked how each card turned out.  It's hard to get a good photo of the front of these cards so I took several:
Don't you just love that patterned vase?!  I think it turned out really pretty and it really highlights those gorgeous tulips.  The large butterfly was in my bits and pieces stash, so I just punched out the two little ones to go along with it.  I added a small rhinestone to each for a little sparkle and the gold corner piece because that corner needed just a little something.
 Here is is starting to open:
 And here is the inside with a nice little place for the sentiment and a small handwritten note:
I even decorated the inside of the card following my Project of the Week tutorial that was posted on The House blog on Monday.  Actually, this card was in the inspiration for that tutorial.
