Fancy Fold Challenge

One of my favourite challenges is the Fancy Fold challenge and we have one this week at Come and Get It.  It is fun to try new folds and revise some of our old ones.  For this challenge I used a variation of the tent card using the round according fold die from Elizabeth Crafts for the card. It was nice to find another pattern for the die.  

I have used a digital stamp from Bugaboo, one of our sponsors this week for the card.  The image is called Birdie .  I think the image is so cute. 

I coloured my image with Copics  and a Wink of Stella then added some grass, pearl, flowers and a sentiment.  Thank you for stopping by and have creative day.
