70th birthday card for the mother in law

i saw a link for a napkin fold card on MSE and decided to use it for my mother in laws 70th birthday card, 3 attempts at colouring and 2 attempts at folding and about 8 hours work this is the finished result,
the image is a free prestamped image from LOTV from a magazine,  i am limited on colour as i only have 30 or so promarkers,  her wings have had some stickles on them,  i used some charms that were from the works and the flowers were handmade,  you are meant to use a round the page punch but as i dont have one i have improvised using the tonic punch system.

thank you cards for teachers

i only made 2 cards for teachers as my 4 year old made all his own and my other son got bored after making 4( we have a lot of teaching assistants)  he did well to get to 4 really.

also my teacher gifts were the little baskets that i filled with lindt chocolates,  i honestly cant remember where i got the tutorial from but im sure it was a link somewhere from the lovely ladies on MSE
