Pixie Cottage Showcase - Fancy Folds

Happy Saturday!
I can't believe it's Christmas next week!
We are all in the Festive mood here as my Mum flew in from England this week and will be with us until after the New Year!
This is the last Pixie Cottage showcase of 2009 and we are going out with a bang!
The design team was challenged to make a card with a "Fancy Fold" or use a folding technique somewhere on their project.
As I'm the proud owner of a new Martha Stewart Scoring board it was a great challenge for me.
I decided to try my hand at a Rosette flower and I love how easy it was to create a stunning embellishment!

There are a few challenges I did along with this one:
Cupcake Crafts wanted a 5" by 5" Birthday Card
Die Cut Dreams had the theme of "Glitter Me Silly"
Mojo Monday had a great sketch that I tweaked to make it square
Ooh La La had a color combo challenge of Brown and Pink
365 Cards Day 280 had a Trio of Chipboard, Blossom and Button
Creative Card Crew had the theme of "Anything Goes"
Cute Card Thirsday wanted an Aperture card
Dutch Dare had the theme "Make it Happen" and wanted handmade embellishments on the card

I used the Udderly Adorable Girl Cow as my image and colored her with Copic's.
I used my Quickutz square die to cut the window in the front of the card.
For the scallop border around the aperture I used a Fiskars border punch.
The papers are My Mind Eye.
The flower was made on my Martha Stewart scoring border and after I made one practise one the next one was easy!

Here's a close up of the sweetie cow!

Here you can see the flower, it's actually Stickles and not just glue around it but it doesn't show well in the photo.
I hope you liked this and ae well on your way to having a wonderful Christmas!
