OSAAT Challenge #143 More Than One Fold

The One Stitch At A Time Challenge Blog has a new theme this week. It's to create something with more than one fold.  This week our sponsor is Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps and the fab prize if you use a Stitchy Bear digi image is $9.00 to spend in the store. Just think how many beautiful creations you could make with that amount to spend.  You can still enter a non SBDS image and will be put into a draw to spend $3.00 in store

Well.....knowing how absolutely useless I am with scissors, craft knife or any other cutting instrument and the amount of wasted paper I was producing, I cheated and went and bought a set of triple fold cards from Papermania.  If you can't die cut it then don't bother, Jen!  Spellbinders, Marianne, Memory Box and Cheery Lynn are up there at the top of the tree for me.

The focal image of my card is this beautiful and serene digi from Teri of Delicious Doodles called Olyvia and you can find her here as well as hundreds of other beautiful designs.

I coloured Olyvia with some very pale greys and blues and the background image of trees is also a Stitchy Bear digi image I used last year called Snow Deer Scene by Ike. Lots of lovely glitter on the trees and fluffy stuff on the fur of Olyvia's dress to finish.

It was a really sunny and cold winter's day when I took the photo, that's the blue sky I've caught at the very front, really fitting for this card.

I'd like to enter the following:-

Forgetful or What!

Last week I totally forgot to post my DT card for the One Stitch at a Time challenge blog.  Our theme  was to use Fabric, Ribbon or Lace. Well, I'm not averse to putting ribbon on a guy's card and this was pure silk ribbon tied in a knot.  The image is from Barb and you can find The Black Widow right here at Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. . 

I loved the image and had a certain person (our nephew) in mind when I saw the image,  This is one strong woman and there's no messing with her.
