Stampotique Designer's Challenge ~ #123 Card with more than 1 fold!

It's time for another fabulous challenge over on the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog. This week's challenge is to include more than one fold on a card! Here's mine..

I won! .. I didn't let the easel card design beat me!!

Did I say easel or evil!!!!! ;-) hehe.. I made this card with a certain special lady in mind! We've been talking about spending more time together and doing making time to do things which make us happy!

The brand NEW Find Your Happy girlie is absolutely spot on! We should all find our happy! ♥

I was quite selfish creating this card using my favourite colours and some of my favourite stamps.. it certainly did make me happy making this card! 

I coloured some plain cardstock using some Adirondack inks and a brayer (a first for me!!!) I'm sure it's supposed to give a neater finish but I like this shabby/grungey look.. then I stamped the background with French TextDaisy, Daisy and the brand NEW gorgeous stars from the Design Cube by France Papillon.

The girlie was stamped onto plain white cardstock, coloured then added to the card. The sentiment Enjoy today (absolutely perfect for this card & so true!) was stamped using Archival ink and the gorgeous buttons added are from Tea House Bridge, aren't they cute!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you like my card.. I am AWOL atm and scheduling this post so I hope it posts alright!!!

Please pop on over to the Stampotique Designer's Challenge blog to see lots of inspiration from the Design Team. I look forward to catching up with everyone's creations really soon.

  Best wishes, Gez
