One more gatefold

Another gatefold birthday card I made with a belly band to hold the card closed. I'm thinking that I'm needing to send these cards out soon since these birthdays have past, so sorry! I used all scraps for this card except for the base of the card (pink pirouette) and one of my favorite stamp sets Cheep Talk...such a cute bird! Here's the inside of the card and the belly band.
I'm so sad that the CS color pink pirouette retired from SU. Prettiest pink ever produced by SU (in my opinion). Anyone else sad about that?
Almost the weekend! Hopefully I will have more time to visit everyone's blogs, I know I've been missing out on all of the inspiration!! More tomorrow!

Hi Teri,
Your card is adorable! I agree with you 100% about SU's Pink Piroutte! Why on earth did SU drop it? That pink was the softest and prettiest ever! I'm still trying to make myself like the new "in-colors". They are OK but they don't pull at my attention.
Have a great day and TFS!

Color combination is so pretty and love the cheep talk set too - one of my favorites. I stocked up on the PP paper before it retired - one of my favorite CS too. I need to case your card!

I agree! PP is just the right shade of pink! SU! should consider making it one of their permanent colors.
Love the card!

Love this pretty gatefold card. The colors are so cheerful. I agree with you, I'm disappointed that SU! discontinued the Pink Pirouette color line! It was the prettiest of all their pinks. The BD gal will be very happy to receive this pretty card. Have a great weekend! Cami

Oh Teri, I LOVE your gatefold card, and the SU paper you used is PERFECT! Don't you just hate when they retire something that you really like!

Love Yah,
