Fancy!


This week Sharon's challenge is to create a card using a 'fancy fold' ...you know, something other than the traditional top or side fold. I am keeping it super simple and pulling out an old standby...the matchbook card.

Here's my card....

...sorry...the pictures could be better....MUCH better! It's 1AM at the time I am putting this one together...I'm so tired! You don't want to know! I am hoping to get some sleep sometime Saturday! lol! My coffee high is gone...hopefully, I can make it just a little bit longer!

I used PTI's Merry & Bright Additions for this one. The paper is Basic Grey...picked it up over at Eclectic Paperie....a little SU ribbon and some liquid pearls and ...well, how easy is that!

Be sure and check out the rest of Sharon's team....
