Shabby Goodness Meets Fancy Fold

Happy Friday to you all.....
can you believe April is almost gone.....
time really does fly it seems....
today I have a bit of "shabby goodness" to share with you.....
I made a "two way" open card......
what is so neat about this, is that the flower holds it all shut.....
this week at Sugar Creek Hollow, the challenge was to make a "Fancy Fold" card
I used to make this style of card a few years back and it was fun to recreate with it again....
the cardstock is SU Marina Mist......the Designer Paper I am in love with...
it is Beau Chateau also from SU....
the flower is Prima
the shabby seam binding ribbon is some I made with Tattered Angels Spray....
The little bird is from KC Company...it came from Joann's, and they have a wonderful new line of the shabby little cutouts.....

OMGosh this is so fun!!! I'm always looking for new folds and techniques! So glad you stopped by my blog so I could find yours! ;) BTW, I have filled my dog treat container! LOL Dogs now associate the sound of that opening with receiving a treat so they come running! LOL Thanks for your great comment and I'm happy to be a new follower here! :)
