Fancy Fold

It was my DIL's birthday last  week - can you guess how many fingers?  (Happy Birthday Bea).

I am entering this in Delightful Challenges - Fancy fold card challenge and Southern Girls Challenge - Happy Birthday; and Craft Your Days Away - fancy folds. 

Ed:  I am also entering this into a challenge I have just discovered called UnstampaBelles Challenge - not stamps!

One sheet of cream Co'Ordinations embossed card 12 x 12 cut in half and rounded on one end.  Then I edged this with cream lace, added the flower (Prima) and the Joy metal sticker, the metal clasp (faux) and the number which has been embossed with Stamp It Bronze Sparkle EP. Photo taken in late afternoon, hence the shadows.

Inside the card I used papers from the Prima Annalee collection, and some SU Vanilla card.  The sentiments are stamped with Momento Close to Cocoa ink using Stamp It Birthday Sayings. The clasp is really held down with velcro dots. I popped in a small piece of lingerie to remind her of her youth!
