Twisted Easel Birthday Card!

Today I want to share with you a card I made for my son-in-law's birthday.  I had been seeing twisted easel cards, and really wanted to try one, and since I had made a fancy fold for several other family members' birthdays, I decided to try one.  Here is a picture of my finished card:

I love the Celebrations Designer Series paper--it makes such bright and cheerful cards!  It made choosing the colors for the card so easy!  I also have a picture of the card opened:
