What's New Wednesday - Peek-a-Boo Card

Hello.  Happy Hump Day.

Thanks for all your fabulous comments and good luck wishes - lets keep our fingers and toes crossed eh!  :-)

Wednesday's are going to be all about trying something new.  It could be a new technique, a new card fold (like today) just anything new to me :-)

I had to give this fabulous card a try, Norma Lee over at Splitcoast Stampers has this wonderful tutorial for this card and it can be found HERE.

I have to admit though, it was a difficult card to photograph.

I used the last of the butterflies and flowers from Saturday's session.  Same colour scheme etc with a little bit of colour added to the stamped images.

The stamped image is a Memory Box stamp called Butterfly Study.  I coloured it a little with my Prisma pencils.

I took a photo of it laying flat.  For the frames I used Spellbinders Labels 8.

And when you open up the card, it pulls the sentiment panel into the frame :-)  This sentiment was a Studio 12 (Michaels) stamp.  I think I may add a little more colour to this panel.

Here is a photo of the card, from over head so you can see the folds.

For the butterfly and the centre of the flowers I added the Flourish with a Bling sticky back Pearl Dots in Copper.

Turned up my corners and added a little sentiment to the front. Just a Note by Hot off the Press.

That's it, my new for today :-)

Hope you are having a fabulous week so far.
