Bear-thday surprise!

Hello lovely people,

Happy Friday everyone and I'm here with my Dies to Die For DT card.

I decided it was time to try a twist and pop card.  I love paper engineering and fancy fold designs so I checked out a few templates and tutorials and then made my own version.

I kept the front fairly plain as the inside is hopefully going to add the wow factor!  I did get to use my fab new label sentiment strip die though ;-)

I made my version with square panels in the centre (because I just prefer to design on squares!) and I've decorated them with birthday themed bits and pieces.

Here's a closer shot of the centre panels;

Now, cute bears and cake was always going to be a winning combination for me so I just had to add these little MFT bears to my collection!
