Surprise Birthday

I made this card for a dear friend. Her husband threw her a surprise party tonight. She is such a special gal and is always doing so much for so many. I used so many of my resources to make this card.
The base, door, vines and poem are Penny Duncan, The gate is part of a card from Monica. The pillars and flowers are from the Moonlight Garden set at SVG Cuts. The grass is from Plantan Schoolbook cart. The butterflies are from MS Elegant Cake. The hummingbird and dragon flies are from Lyrical Letters.
I made the door seperate so she could open it. I'm happy to say she liked it. It was a wonderful party.

So Cely asked if it would fit into 5 x 7 or half sized envelope. Here is the cut file on an envelope.
I have also sized Penny's card files smaller, but it is think and the space is pretty small.

I found you again....I am a follower, but couldn't get back to you...haha wonderful wonderful job....thinking of this as maybe a wedding invite. Many wonderful people have sent me ideas, including Penny and I must addd this to the list. I know I want the fold, but how you approached it is wonderful!

I meant to ask....what size card is that? A 5 x 7 card would be nice for a wedding invite and easier to work with, but a A2 size would be more economical.
