Show us your folds!

It's time for challenge number 24 at CYDA, our theme this time is 'Fancy Folds' so here's a chance to maybe try something you haven't before.

Our challenge is being sponsored by the fabulous Meljen's Designs. The winner wins 4 digi images of their choice, what a fab prize! Please do come and join in the fun and check out the gorgeous creations made by my lovely team mates.

So onto my DT card, I opted to make a square criss-cross or pocket card, there's a great tutorial here but I just made it up as I went along ;-) I used some much neglected paper and a gorgeous image from Meljen's Designs called Teacup Mouse you can purchase him here. A lovely friend sent me some absolutely beautiful stash the other day (you know who you are missus x) and in there was the most beautiful lace and silver corners. Almost too lovely to use but I cut one piece of the lace in half to decorate the diagonal flaps on the front of the card and added one of the silver corners and loads of blooms as usual. I've tried to mix bold colours with pastels, think I like the effect...
