Creative cottage challenge # 10 DT Card

Hello. Sorry I'm a little late posting my card today - but I took advantage of the fact that Issac went to nursery this morning and went craft shopping with my mum !
I know I really should have been doing the ironing but I figured that it would still be there waiting when I got home and guess what - it is !

So this week at the creative cottage challenge blog the challenge is to use "fancy folds".
When I saw this I did panic ever so slightly - I don't really do unusual folds but I really enjoyed making this spring card - just shows that sometimes you should step out of that cosy comfort zone and try something new - you will surprise yourself.

I have used this months creative cottage freebie set - yes it's free - Tracy has been very generous to you this month. The kit includes 6 papers, flowers, alphabets, hearts and the image of the very cute George. It is only free for this month so head on over and get it while you can.

There is a great tutorial here at splitcoast stampers if you need help with a spring card.

All I added was some ribbon, a button, a swirl stamp (Anna griffin - thanks mum x) and some stickles to accent here and there and voila done job !

Hope you like it - I'm off to play with my craft goodies - the ironing can wait another day !
((hugs)) Suzie xx
