Well, today is day one of our scrap retreat and I'm having a blast!  We came, got all set up, and I created one card before we head to the casino. (Wish me luck!!!)  Here is my *first* card of the weekend!

I had so much fun with the last Napkin Fold card I did, I just had to try another one when I saw Catch the Bug's new challenge: Different Fold.  I really like how this one turned out!

Here is the card closed...

The digi on the top of the belt is a Pattie's Creation stamp.

Here is the card half open...

Here is the card fully open...

And here's a close-up of the inside of the card.

There really is lace across the middle...I know it's hard to see, but I swear it's there!  And the dots on the corners of the flags are little mini pearls.  The teal background paper is from Bearly Mine Crafts. The girl stamp is Ava from Bugaboo (she originally had wings and was carrying a heart, but I altered a bit to be holding the cupcake) and the cupcakes are Pattie's Creations.  Flowers were colored using cats eye chalk.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Catch the Bug - Different Fold

Paper Sundae's - #56 Pick Your Toppings: Pick at least two out of Flowers, Lace, Distressing and the Color Pink.  (I used flowers, lace and pink.)

Happileigh Scrappin -  Cupcake Wars Challenge #10

Bearly Mine - #4 Ribbons and Pearls

Thanks for stopping by, and I should have a bunch more posts over the next few days.  See you then!!  =)
