Happy Birthday Accordion Card

Welcome back to our new Let's Craft and Create Challenge #116 "Spots or Stripes" for September 2016.

This is my first accordion card that I have made for a couple of years.  There are tutorials on U-Tube on how to put this accordion card together using the the Elizabeth Crafts Accordion Oval die.  I cut each section using a very thick card stock to cut the main frame before adding the pattern paper on top of each section.  I found the card tends to warp if I don't use a thick card stock for the main frame.  I covered one front and not the two backs of this accordion card.  If I had more of this pattern paper, I think the back would have looked nicer with the  same pattern paper.  

I love to make my own flowers when I have time.  I just love the Sue Wilson Petite Peony Cluster flower die. I cut out two sets of the flowers with white glimmer paper and sponged it with a light Versa Mark pink and formed the petals with my fingers.  I added  3mm flat back pearls in the middle of each flower and then glued it on the flower on the main die.
 I used the same white glimmer card stock and cut out two Sue Wilson Charming Hearts Corners for each side of the pages.

I used the First Edition Mulberry Kisses card stock and also cut out some butterflies from this pad.
