Birthday Card for my Ethy!

Hey all! I've made a flip up circle book but used it as a card for my wee Ethy who will be 3 in November! I can't believe how the time is flying by!

So here it is all closed up with ribbon to keep it together:

And then here it is opened!

I've made my own embellishments (stars and bow on the ickle notes)out of fabric and the Tobi images from Some Odd Girl are just like my Ethy! Esp the different digis available doing various things LOL and of course using Funky Hand Papers are always totally fabby and i've managed to use all 5 boy papers from the Birthday freebie thats good going for me! LOL

So here is my recipe:

Funky Hand papers
Some Odd Girl Tobi Digis
Die's - Spellbinders Nestabilities Circl, Sizziz Alteration Scallops and Azure Number 3
Ribbon and Fabric from stash (well the fabric was an old shirt of Ethy's! I am recycling LOL)

I'm also entering it into these challenges:
