Allsorts of Fancy Folds

Good morning. Today sees another new challenge over at Allsorts but first a huge THANK YOU to all of you that joined in with last week's challenge - we had so many gorgeous entries I'm sure Fleur had trouble picking her TOP5 - why not pop over and see if you were one of the lucky ones.

So onto this week and Emma has challeneged us to use a
 as our base card.

Here's my take on a side stepper:

I simply scored an A4 piece of card across the centre and then cut from 10.5cm in and 7.2cm up to 7.2cm down then folded the middle left piece in half the opposite way - sounds way more complicated than it actually was lol!!!

I have used some of my scrummy new K&Co papers that my eldest son Jamie bought me for Christmas to cover the base card and also for stamping the Hero Arts flower and butterflies onto. The leaves were stamped onto super smooth card and coloured with PM's
The leafy scroll is a Marianne Creatables die
The border is a  Martha Stewart punch
Sentiment - Creative Expressions
Finished off with a flat back pearl in the centre of the flower head.

Thanks for popping over and taking a look.
I  love to read your comments.
Have a fabulous day.
