The Paper Shelters 53rd Challenge - "Fancy Folds"

Good Morning Everyone, I hate to say it but weve reached another Challenge here at The Paper Shelter and this time its a "Fancy Folds" not always easy to start with, but Im sure you will get the old brains rattling and find one that suits you. Anyway as always our very generous sponsers are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter.


And they are offering a fabulous prize of $20. to spend on their website, thats providing you have used one of their images, but even if you havent they are giving you 3 digis of your own choice to play with, its definitely a win win situation, you just carnt loose.
And here is my card for this "Fancy Folds" Challenge.


For my image I have used this sweet "Fairy of the Cookies" image and you will find her here, and coloured her with my copic pens, then used Nestabilie Label Die No.1 to cut her out, Ive inked around the edge and layered it up onto a larger mount cut with the same die.
The main card is a diamond top folded card, and for the bottom I have used the same coloured turquoise card with the papers from the "Bewitched Night" digi set and you will find there here. The first paper is a striped one in shades of turquoise, then on top I have used a pink patterned one and then along both edges one of my Martha Stewart Lace border punches, then wrapped a ribbon with a ribbon tag (Nestabilie die) threaded through the two holes and attached it to the back of the first mount. I also stamped a sentiment on another piece of white card, cut it out and stuck it to the ribbon tag.
The top diamond shape has had two of the same piece of patterned paper that I used on the bottom but cut in squares and the same border punch design but this time a corner punch has been used on all the corners, layered up and then stuck to the base diamond shape mount and stuck to the diamond shape making sure that the mounted image was facing the right way (oh the times Ive got that wrong, I wont go into that).
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelters Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of my extremely talented "A" Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will also take part in this "Fancy Folds" Challenge.
