Spring Fever Challenge - Day 3!

Yeah! I made it to Day 3 of Denise's Spring Fever Challenge, and have completed each one so far! Granted, tonight I neglected to cook dinner for DS, but DH was able to prepare something quick for him. I've had this card brewing in my mind all day, and I just had to come home from work and tackle it. Today we had to use a funky fold, polka dots, and decorate the inside of the card. We also had to spell out something with alpha stamps, or stickers. Here it is:
It is a triangle tri-fold, which is a little tricky for me to make. I always feel like my score lines are going in the wrong direction. The DP is Hot Off the Press, Winter Dots on a Vintage Violet base. The image panel is mounted on lilac scrap, and Soft Sky. The stamps for the front image are Stampendous Hey Cupcake from Eclectic Paperie. I just love that phrase, so made a frame with it. All parts of the cupcake are cut out and attached for dimension. Candle is colored with gel pens.

Inside, I used some Prima-like flowers (I think they were from Target), and SU! Brush Stroke Alphabet for the sentiment. Ink is Vintage Violet. Brads are Pewter from Making Memories. The ribbon is from Ribbons and Bows Oh My.

Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with Day 4. If you haven't already, go check out Denise's blog, All Things Stamped for some great inspiration. Have a good night, and thanks for looking!
