    Now when I first saw the title of the challenge, I started to panic.  I have always struggled with fun ways to fold cards mostly because I am math-challenged and never cut paper the right size when it involves more than one cut!  So, as a beginner to this theme, I selected an “easel card”.  For my card, I used an image that I have been wanting to color for awhile now, “Girl Flower Butterfly” by an artist whose work I greatly admire, Mitzi Sato-Wiuff for Scrapbook Stamp Society.

     Of course, she is colored with copics and parts of her image is dusted with Deco Art Glamour Dust. I did not “color” the small violet flowers- instead I “dotted” the V-copics (V17, 15 & 01). The beautiful blue design paper is from K & Company, Portabello Road 12×12 paper pad. It is such a vibrant and beautiful blue paper!  Cardstock is Bazill and Cut Cardstock.

        Here is a close up of her… I used Pebbles Iridescent chalk in blue around her but it isn’t as visible in the pic as it is in person.  Love working with chalks!   Metal corner and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Recollections.  Lace is gorgeous… from Dies to Die For.
     The inside sentiment is a stamp from Stampendous.  Kaisercraft Pearl Sprays and large pearl stud from Prima.  Take a look at the truly fabulous folded cards created by the DESIGN TEAM! Hopefully we have inspired you to join us! Have a great day and thank you for your kind comments.
