Bella and Bronte

Hi Friends! Happy Tuesday!

I'm back with a fun little card I made for my swap group last month. My friend Barb, was the hostess and she picked FUN FOLD for the July theme.

While I LOVE this theme and I really enjoy seeing all the amazing folds people use, to be quite honest, I'm not very great at complex folds. I would like to blame it all on my Score-pal and say, perhaps mine wasn't made right, but alas, I think I am the problem! I can't tell you how many pieces of paper I go through trying to make folds work! Haha. I think I'm highly dysfunctional in the area of scoring and folding. :) But after many attempts and trying different things, I settled on the card that you see. It started out as a combo of two folds but it ended up being mostly a Gate Fold.:)

I used a Mo Manning stamp called Bella and Bronte and paired her with papers from Me and My Big Ideas (both gifts from a dear, dear friend of mine). Bella and Bronte are colored in Copics and matched with a button from Basic Grey. Oh and the sentiment is not part of this set, but came from a Kanban set (I think I got it fromthe Sugar Nellie store online).

Thanks for stopping by to take a look! Have a wonderful day!

Your Bella and Bronte card is fabulously done, but then-again- I had the priviledge to see you at work and know how thorough (sp?) you are my dear sweet friend...
