Birthday Fairy

I made this card for someone that is celebrating her 62nd birthday later this month.  I first saw this stamp on Mary's blog and loved Mary's card so much I CASEd her image.  The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop.  I added the "62" at the end of her wand and I popped up the end of her wings.  Keeping with my resolution to try new things I made this card a gatefold one.  It took a bit longer than it should have, but I'm really happy with how it turned out.  I just need to add a sentiment to the inside.
