** Happy 4th of July! **

Hi!  I hope you are having a fabulous 4th of July
We are gearing up for a bbq, pool party, bon-fire and lots of s'mores later!  I'm also happy to bring you a new card using a Fresh Brewed Designs image -   this gorgeous Flamenco Flamingo (the party version!) which is right in line with  challenge #53 - Party theme!  

My card today is using Flamenco Flamingo Dancer and she's
ready to party with her fancy dress, flowers and party shoes!
I started out thinking joy fold and then ended up creating this
fancy half folded accordian style card :)  {If this has a name, please
drop me a note and let me know! It was a lot of fun!}
As it opens, I made an identical space with a party note
that's hidden when the card is closed!

  The inside sentiment is computer generated.
If you peek at the FBD Challenge Blog today,
you'll see a patriotric version of this card :)

**And just a reminder also that there will be a blog hop
coming up July 11th!**

Big hugs,
Bigger Blessings!
