Fussy and Fancy Challenge 142 - Fancy Folds

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and talented



My name is Norma and when it comes to card-making I am definitely a
Fussy and Fancy kind of gal.
I simply love adding embellishments to my cards.  The hardest type of cards for me to create is actually when I have to make CAS (clean and simple) cards and have to restrain myself from embellishing...ha ha.
My cards tend to feature images (rubberstamps or digitals) that I like to colour with alcohol-ink markers and/or coloured pencils.  My favorite embellishments are flowers, pearls and swirls/flourishes.  I'm a die-and-punch addict--spent way too much money on  Love to make my own paper flowers.  I also love doing fancy fold cards and that's why I chose this theme for the challenge.

The challenge Norma has chosen is:
Fancy Folds
Here is the gorgeous card
that Norma has created
for her challenge!

Using Marianne Design Creatables LR0111 Flowers, LR0151 Garden Branch,
LR0122 Poinsettia With Veins
