Fussy and Fancy Challenge #185-"Fancy Folds or Shaped Cards"

Good Friday morning dear blogging friends!

And Happy Easter as well!!

Today at Fussy and Fancy we begin a brand new challenge...and I am the hostess!!  I have chosen "Fancy Folds or Shaped Cards" as my theme for the next two weeks!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I started with a favourite Go Kreate die #360020 for my base...
I cut two 3"X12" strips using a Maja Design paper then used a border punch to create a fancy edge...then folded at 1/12 inch increments to create a fancy circle...
of course I had to add some cheesecloth and natural fibre...
I have made this an easel card...
closer view...
decorated with gorgeous white flowers and fab lace (sadly I covered much of this up) from Noor Design...
the bottom...
sentiments are both from Rubbernecker Stamps...
just had to add this sweet little cherub...
love these flowers...
I added some stamens for a bit of colour...
side view of top...
and bottom...

So I have actually used both my options...it's a shaped card decorated with fancy folds!!!

All materials are listed/linked above.

Until next time...thank you for taking the time to stop by!!  Your visits and comments are SO very much appreciated!!!
