Fancy Folds!

Well where do the days go? I went away for the weekend with one child recovering from the chicken pox and have returned with the other child suffering from it now!! 2 children at home full time, and both of them not sleeping well is not condusive to much crafting!!!!!!!! Ah well at least the end is in sight. Theo is absolutely pickled bless him!

you might have noticed my 2 new banners on the side of my Blog.  I was in the top 3 in 2 challenges last week.  How chuffed am I!!  Thank you to the ladies at 'moving along with the time'  and  'Do it with Digi's'

Anyway enough about me, here is the reason you have all looked at my blog, so let me show you tonights card.

The base of the card is from Red Hot Bed.  I have embossed the blue card and layered it onto a darker blue card then added it to to folds, after first attatching the ribbon where i wanted it.  I have use a mini stamp of a motorbike  to decorate the triangle folds.

The image i have used is from Karen's Doodles called 'born to ride'  I have coloured the image in pro markers and then cut it out with a Nellie Snellen multiframe die.

i have attatched a motorbike charm from my stash to the ribbon, and stamped another mini motorbike, punched it out with a circular punch then layered onto black card and cut around with scalloped scissors.

The sentiment is from my computer and has been punched out with a 1.5" circular punch.

I am hoping to enter this carrd into the following competitions. 

Thanks for looking.
