It's all about the folds at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
This is my second post for today.  Scroll down for the Dude Time Doodles blog hop.

Another week has passed and it's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:

More Than One Fold

Just upload a creation that has more than one fold.  So bring out those easels, steppers or anything else you can come up with.
We have 3 fabulous sponsors for you this week.

Some Odd Girl - $9 voucher code for their online store
Eye Candie Creations - 4 images of your choice
Sassy Studio Design - 4 images of your choice

I was lucky enough to use a gorgeous image from Sassy Studio and I made a gatefold easel card.
This is the card folded up and ready for the envelope.

And this is the card fully open.

I coloured the image with promarkers.  I added some pink lace around the image to act as a frame.  All the paper used were from First Edition.  I used coredinations for the matting and all the edges were distressed.  I used my distress tool but also added some distress ink to the edges of all the papers.  The little corners are a memory box die called Macarena corner.  Added some flowers and a sentiment to the base and lots of pearls.

Here are another couple of pictures.

For more inspiration just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges and check out the design team projects.  All gorgeous.
