Folds + challenges

Good Morning this wet and windy Easter Monday, the weather is dreadful today, so unless it brightens up I will be in my craft room. I wanted to show the card I've made for a few challenges using the lovely Tilda, (I really need to get more of these stamps) she is adorable. I took my lead from the Just Magnolia challenge this week which is Folds, and then took inspiration for colour etc from a few other challenges.

I think this must be the most intricate card I've made to date, but I'm really pleased with the outcome. I've used quite a few pictures to show you the various stages. To keep the centre card closed I used a very thin magnetic strip hidden behind the paper, it worked beautifully.

The recipe for the card is below the challenges that I'm entering.

Hope you all have a lovely day and that the weather is nicer where ever you are.

Hugs Suzi xx
