still addINKtive Challenge #7 - Colour & Sketch with a fancy fold!

Hithere, sorry I am a bit late with my post this week!

Bron & Kathy have a fabulous sketch/colour combo that you can play along with at still addINKtive this week.  You can use the sketch OR the colours OR both together!

I have used both to create this card:-


Here are the challenge components (I squished my circle into an oval shape, lol):-


I have had this concept floating around in my head for a while, after playing around with some scrap paper to create the fold.  The crumb cake base is cut from a single piece of paper.  Here it is without the belly band:-


& here is what it looks like front on:-


I've included lots of piercing & sponging!  The secret garden stamps & dies made the flowers quick & easy.

We hope you can play along with the Team at still addINKtive this week.  You can find the challenge & their beautiful samples here.

Helen, I LOVE this card! The vellum belly band is so clever and the way the card opens - well I just think that is ingenious.

What a wonderful idea you came up with Helen. I love the way the card folds and I love the vellum band and butterfly too.
