40th Birthday Card

Ever since I saw a book shaped card tute at Dr.Sonia's blog, I wanted to make one. And finally I did it and so happy with it:) This was for my friend who is an avid reader. So, it was a perfect for her:)  I've hand cut all the shapes. It was difficult to cut black paper especially in nights. And when I finished, my 2.5 year old tried his hand on craft only to make 10 pieces of the lady in left! gosh I was so annoyed and sad....but with my hubby's help I joined her back:) phew...I never imagined he could do that b'coz my elder one has never spoiled anything till now.....he never touch it without my permission till date. but, this little one is just too naughty!



Hope you like it!

Gorgeous card.I would like to know too how you cut those ladies.Superb cutting and even though your little one cut into ten pieces ...you have managed to stick it without a single evidence of those multiple cuts.you have linked up this at the Lulupu challenge but I can't see a direct link to Lulupu in your post.please can you rectify that.
