Quixotic Challenges DT Card-Fold it!

Hi guys! Hope your week has been going well! Sorry for not being around the past week! Anyways, today is a new challenge over at Quixotic Challenges-we had a new rule change last week so if you haven't checked that out then make sure you have a little look. It was my turn to pick the challenge this week and I chose Fold It-either make something which has more than 1 fold or decorate alter something that has more than one fold! I decided to make a gatefold card-haven't made one for like forever so was quite fun, and it gave me another chance to use my new Martha Stewart scoring board!

Last week I treated myself to some of the gorgeous new papers Elaine has stock by Girl's paperie-aren't they fab! They're summery, and shabby chic-love em! I also had to snag myself one of the new Cosmo Cricket De-Lovely paper pad too:) If you haven't checked out the new stock at Quixotic Paperie then have a looky here-there's tons of goodies and you get 10% off right now to celebrate the shops 1st birthday by entering the code HAPPYANNIVERSARYQP at checkout!

I also used one of my fave Belles and Whistles images which you can grab here-she's been coloured with copics:)

I'm going to enter this card at the following challenges:

Charisma (flowers)
Cupcake Crafts (dazzle us-bling)
A Spoonful of Sugar (floral delight)

Well that's about it from me-thanks for popping by and for any comments you might leave! Enjoy the rest of your week-see ya soon:)
