Magnolia Monday #20 - A Tilda Spring Fold Card

EDITED to add - Place Top 3 at The Crafty Pad , thanks!!!

Welcome to another week and another Magnolia Monday, number 20!
This one was a challenge for me as although I love the look of the Shabby Chic style I find it hard to emulate.
I also chose to incorporate a pretty hard card fold so it took a little longer than I was expecting it to to finish!

Card Recipe:
Image - Tilda with Flower Pot
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Lost and Found Madison Avenue by My Minds Eye
Doily Die - French Pastry by Cheery Lynn Designs
Border Punch - Doily Hearts by Martha Stewart
Butterfly Trio Punch - Martha Stewart
Roses - Kort and Godt
Lace Fabric - Joanns
Trim - Wrights
Sentiment - The Paper Studio

This is how the card looks unfolded, I inked all the edges and faux stitched each panel. I really like how soft and subtle the patterns are on the paper pad.

There is a small panel for your message which got inky too!

I don't know if you can see but I used another piece of my favorite lace fabric on the main panel of the card. Even it got the ink treatment.
I'm not sure whether this is more distressed or shabby or vintage, I hope a little of all.
Please come along and share your card with me this week.

What a beauty Katie. I was also thinking about these folding card, but forgot how its called. So now I know it's a springcard. Years agoo I bought this template, but this morning I thought I go to seek and find it. And now I see your beautiful card. That's really coincidental I think. Thanks for sharing and the inspiration.

Greetings Henny.
