I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me. My favourite quote is by Maya Angelou. “You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.” I hope you join me in my search for my creative side. Thanks for stopping by!

Joy Fold Challenge

Cindy has a great challenge at Come and Get It Challenges this week, a Joy Fold card.  I had fun making my card.  I altered a pattern I found on Pinterest and added my own twist.  

To make my card I used several die cuts from several different companies, Mind's Eye pattern paper and a sentiment rubber stamp by All Night Media. 
I sprayed my tattered flower and leaves with a Pearl Glaze to give them body and a shine.  I added some faux stitches around the edge of the card for more interest and a button and brad to complete the card.

Hope you will join us this week for this Joy Fold Challenge at Come and Get It. Have a creative day.
