Joy Fold Card

A very good morning to you all! Thank you so much for coming to see me I love our visits!  My crafty day didn't quite pan out yesterday I only finished one DT card and started another I just coouldn't get motivated!

Today sees the start of another new challenge at The Paper Shelter and this week it is the A Team's turn with the theme of A Card of Many Folds!  Here is my card:


I decided to do a Joy Fold Card.  I used the delightful A Victorian Morticia which you can get here from The Paper Shelter. She has been coloured with Copics and the edges distressed with Dusty Concord DI then sprayed with Spray and Sparkle.  I then cut the image out with Grand Nestie Circles and made a little card with Grand Scallped Circles.  The papers are Fancy Pants October 31st.  I added a spider which is a MB die and also added the bow from MB Precious Hearts.  The spooky Candelabra which was made with my Cameo.  I added a sentiment to the inside using a very old rubber stamp by Uptown.  The sentiment was embossed with Amethyst Ice EP but was very difficult to get a good photo of.  Here are some more pictures:









The sentiment does look a lot better IRL!  As usual, we have a fabulous prize for the lucky winner:


Please go over to The Paper Shelter Challenge to see the rest of the DT projects there are some brilliant things to see!

If I get time today I will pop back and try and enter some challenges!

I am off to the Trafford Centre today with a friend for a spot of shopping and lunch! I hope you have a nice day whatever you are doing and a big thank you for coming to see me! Take care xx
