The Pixie Cottage Challenge #31 - Fancy Fold

It's time for another new sketch from Pam at The Pixie Cottage and a new technique challenge to go along with it!



This is a fairly simple sketch as we'd like you to also make the card with a "Fancy Fold"! This can be an easel card, a gatefold, a z- fold, anything other than the regular one fold card. Of course you can just do the sketch but it wouldn't be a challenge without a little thinking would it! LOL
You don't have to use a Pixie Cottage Stamp to enter but if you do have why not try out!
Remember you can use the sketch, the theme or both and can combine our challenge with any others you like!

Challenges:
Digi Doodle Shop - Use Your Favorite Stamp
Craft Your Days Away - Favorite Thing
Sentiment Sundays - Anything Goes
Drunken Stampers - Masking
Pixie Dust - Buttons
Crafty Catz - Buttons and Bows
Curtain Call - Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Early Expresso, Very Vanilla
Cupcake Inspirations - Brown and Orange/Peach cupcakes
Creative Stamp Friends - Friends
Our Creative Corner - Embossing
Penny's - Anything Goes
Rosie Dees = More Than One Fold
Anything Goes - Folds
Crazy Challenge - Forest Friends/Back to Nature



Card Recipe:
Image - Apple Hannah by Sandra Hammer and Orchid Park by ALota Rubber Stamps
Paper - K&Co
Medium - Copic Markers
Flowers - Prima
Border Punch - Martha Stewart and Fiskars



This is the card open.



There is a panel on the back for the message.



Here is a close up of the image. I masked the two images together and love how well they work together.
We'd love to see you over at The Pixie Cottage!
