Fancy Fold - Delightful Challenges DT

 Hi there,  

This weeks theme over at Delightful Challenges is Fancy Fold.  One of the styles I love is the Centre Stepper card, so I went for that, I printed an extra Briley with her balloons, and layered her for some dimension, the balloons had Crystal Glaze added to them, I used some sparkly Madiera thread from my cross stitching threads and used it for the balloon strings which I threaded through Brileys hand (she was very brave when I attacked with her the needle and it didn't hurt her when I made the hole in her hand - honest !!) My scrolls were die cut with one of my fav Marianne dies and the butterflies ribbon were made using an MS punch. Lastly I used one my fav BP's from MCS which has beautiful white silhouette swirls and butterflies on it, such a shame a lot of it is covered up.

 This week our sponsor is 
who are offering a prize of 3 sets to one lucky winner

My recipe:

DD stamps : Briley Balloons
Card/papers: Centura Pearl Card, MCS Finishing TouchPaper, Glitter paper
Acc / Embellies: Marianne Dies, Crystal Glaze, Madiera Thread, MS Butterfly Punch, Cropadile Corner Punch
Colouring: Promarkers,
Special Techniques: Centre Stepper Card
