Fabulous 40 Z-shaped Card

I was asked to make 'something a bit different' for a friend to give her cousin whose turning 40...

I love z-shaped cards - they are so simple to do but look so fancy.

The image is an old one - Party Rach from the sadly missed Digistamp Boutique, coloured with pro-markers and layered on an intricate die-cut square. The patterned paper is Dovecraft.

I've added some die-cut red numbers, and some sparkly gems. The message inside fits neatly under the image when the card is shut.

I'm entering this into the challenges at:

CRAFT Challenge #540 - anything goes
Creative Knockouts #332 - celebrations
