Hi everyone

Tonight I have a very quick posting with a card to share which I have made for a couple of Challenges.  It seems a long time since I have made a card just because I felt like it.  I set too withmy die-cut machine and oh wow did I have fun.  I have opted to make an Accordian shaped cardWell i have been wanting to try this shape for some time now.  I thought I had seen this shape on Joann's Blog, but somehow I do not see it now, maybe I got confused.  But I am giving you her link because she is just so creative I know you will be blown away with her work so I do hope you have time to pay her a visit.

PS  Joann has very kindly provided me with the link to her lovely card which so inspired me.  I love how we have different styles and can make a card look so different.  I just love this card, and Joann's card is nothing short of stunning.  Do take a look here  
Joann also explains how this card is made too.
I have used numerous die-cuts, mostly are Cheery Lynn.  I just love this oval frame, and the little dinky doiley die comes with it making it such good value.  This is what I used for the edging, and also on the inside.  In addition I have used Cheery Lynn butterflies and corners.  I have added Stickles to the butterflies but it does not show very well in the photo.
