In a Flap - JUGS Technique Challenge

It's another Just Us Girls technique challenge this week!!  We want you to make a "Flap Card". Here's the link to a tutorial from SCS if you need to know how to make one.

Here's my card for this challenge. I LOVE making these and have done many. I also shared this technique with my stampin' sisters at one of our get-togethers. They all loved it as well.
I love these for a change from the norm. This card of mine will be a hand delivered one since it's not going to fit into any envelope :-) I used Hibiscus Pink and New Leaf papers, along with one of the Flourishes digi papers from A Loving Heart collection from My Time Made Easy.  I love that paper - the flowers and flourishes are so dainty and feminine. I decided to make a 3D flower and leaves for my focal image on the flap. I got some tips from Lauren Meader on making these. She'll be doing a tutorial soon - my technique is not perfect but it's a pretty fun flower when all done. The Happy B-day senti is from So Sentimental stamps from MTME. 
Here's the inside of the flap card:

I used one of the sentiments from the new "one free with three" set,  Inside and Out from Gina K along with a few of the matching Flourish flower stamps from Fanciful Flourishes from MTME. I love the magnetic closure - I covered the one under the flower with a small punched circle of the DP.

Super quick and easy - and a unique card style. I hope you'll decide to give it a try and join us this week. Please be sure to let me know if you play along so I can see what YOU do. Now for some inspiration from the DT gals...
