Dream Valley DT for Challenge 61 - Fancy Folds.

Good afternoon! I'm sorry I'm a few hours late with my card for Dream Valley I just had to listen to the cricket: we won, but it was a damn' close-run thing!

Anyway, this time we would like you to show off your Fancy Folds. Our sponsor is Whimsy Farm Twine and one very lucky winner will be able to choose 3 spools of the most gorgeous twine!

I also used twine (from The Ribbon Girl) on my easel card.

The image is by Hero Arts, Clear Design - Layered Flowers. I stamped the big bloom 3 times on orange paper and decoupaged them with thin foam tape. The leaves were stamped and fussy cut from a scrap of green Nitwits paper from the snippets box.

More Nitwits papers, from the Bees Knees set, were used for the background paper and also the Memory Box Spring Border die. The sentiment tags are LotV and the orange tag is by Spellbinders, from 'Framed Tags One.' They all have orange gems added to them to look like fasteners.

I glittered the edges of the petals with Glamour Dust, and the centre is filled with Glossy Accents and seed beads. The stem is made by taking 2 lengths of twine and twisting together from both ends - one hand twists forward and the other back - until it's really tight. then bring your hands together so the twine folds in half, and let go of one end. It twists together!

So there you have it! Do go across to Dream Valley to see the ASTONISHING work my teamies have produced! Make sure you don't miss the balloon! Then select a Fancy Fold - maybe there's one you've always wanted to try - and have a go yourself!

Right, I'm off to gather my strength before the next Test Match starts, at Lord's on Thursday. I'm a little bit obsessed, perhaps!

Take care, my lovelies, and have a great week! Thanks for looking!

Beautifully made. I like what you have done with the rose and the twisted twine for the stem is a real gem of an idea. Hugs Mrs A.
