Anything Goes Challenge- More than one fold

Hi everyone! Hope you had a lovely weekend and managed to fit in lots of lovely crafting. Hubbie was working yesterday (albeit from home) so I managed to colour some images for forthcoming cards. As you know I lurve my colouring so I feel sufficiently nourished craft-wise!!

So the challenge today at Anything Goes is "more than one fold"! What can you come up with? There are so many different card shapes nowadays, the mind boggles. I chose this card which I saw here as I thought the use of acetate was a bit different.

This is a birthday card for my Mum from my sis though her bday is miles off yet!!

So I used Topiaryabella from Stamping Bella. I coloured her with usual mix of lyra and watercolour pencils and added warm copic shadow. I LOVE her dress!! I paper pieced it with these gorgeousness of papers by Basic Grey!

Don't forget you can buy your Basic Grey papers from Lynne at The Craft Den!

The pretty leafy swirls are done using a Boss Kut die, sentiment is Papertrey Ink.

Apologies for the photo, it's hard to photograph acetate!!

Usual close up! I kinda feel that if Carrie from Sex and the City ever did gardening, this is what she would wear. What dyou think?!

I'd like to enter this into:
Stamping Bella- use a Bella!
Kaboodle Doodles- use scissors- for my paper piecing
ABC Challenge- y for yesterday - chosen past challenge " u is for unusual fold"
Pollycraft- great outdoors- hope elegant gardening counts!!

Another close up!

Do please head along to the Anything Goes Challenge and see what the rest of DT have come up with, there are some truly gorgeous cards this week!

Finally I must say a big thank you to the lovely Sally who sent me this cute blog award! Thanks so much, Sally, so sweet of you!! I'm giving this award to all my wonderful followers, feel the love!!

Hi Steph, gorgeous card. :) Thank you so much for letting me know that I won your blog candy. I'm so sorry I didn't see it myself ^^; I've been working on jigsaw puzzles lately and have had very little time for card making. I sent you an email with my address and I hope you received it.
