Beauty of a Fold

Hello Everyone!!!  With so many different folds out there try to use something other than an original card fold. You may find some examples online at the Splitcoaststampers Library.  Link up your Bringing Back Beautiful Challenge creations HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB16. You have until November 30th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!

I followed the Center Step Card tutorial on SCS for my card although I made it a little skinnier (5" x 11") so that I could use the MS punch around the page set for my feature panel!  The base is pink bazzill, then punched a piece of Very Vanilla with the Deco Fan punch around the page set.  For the other three panels I've used Vanilla and topped with pieces of MME Lost and Found DP.  I've stamped the roses from Flourishes' A Year in Flowers 2 set in Memento Tuxedo Black on X-press IT Blending Card and coloured with Copics (RV000, RV32, RV34, G20, G21, G24, G28) and then cut out with scissors.  I've popped this up on foam tape over a panel of more DP cut with Large Oval Nestabilities and matted with pink bazzill cut with Labels 18 Nestabilities.  The sentiment is from Flourishes' Zinnias set and has been stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa and cut out with Fancy Tags Shapeabilities and trimmed with scissors and matted with pink also cut with the same die.  Finally I finished with pink butterflies punched with MS butterfly punch and added several pearls.
