House Mouse and Friends Monday ,,,, Multifold Challenge :-)

Good Afternoon :-) I hope you all had a lovely weekend and found some time for yourselves to play :-) We had loads of fabulous entries to our 'Fave Stamp challenge even though everyone found it difficult to choose :-) Lisa was mean eh !! lol ,, how can we choose a fave !! impossible !!!

This fortnight it was my turn to choose and I chose ,,,

MULTIFOLD ,,, easy peasy :-)

Ann our fab Guest Designer and the DT have come up with an amazing range of folds !! so if you need some inspiration there is plenty for you to see on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge blog :-)

We are sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads so one lucky entrant can choose 3 fab digistamps :-)

Our lovely DT Heather made a fab tutorial on making a shadow box card ,, which you can see here,, I thought it would be fab for this multifold challenge so thats what I did. I did intend to make a box to go with it but haven't had the time yet ,,,, but it does need one :-)

I used this very cute HM Throwing Daisy Petals , I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink, I made the background frame using the Home Accents cartridge on my Cricut. The papers are Kaiser Craft and the flowers are Prima daisies and a Grungeboard die cut, the swirls are also Grungeboard cut using a TH Flourishes die. I added a Martha Stewart butterfly and a few Kaiser Craft pearls to finish :-)

Please pop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see the wonderful creations the girls have made ,,, fantastic !! :-)
