Mo's Challenge #116

Hello, thanks for stopping by today.  I have a fun new card today.  I've never used this fold and it turned out great! I'm so glad Mo posts what the upcoming challenges are, because I was riding snowmobiles with 3 of my boys 3 nights ago and we crashed.  I don't remember anything about the crash, but I broke my arm, my nose, part of my back, and my forehead.  I don't remember anything till I woke up in the hospital.  It was kind of freaky  :(  My boys are all pretty much ok.  I guess that's what happens when you are old!  So, anyway, my card was made ahead and I can get it posted.  Yippee for me I guess  :)  I used Teacup Fairy and she is such a cutie.  She's for my best friend's birthday and I'm safe because she doesn't follow any blogs.  lol   I colored her with my Prismacolor pencils.  She turned out pretty good.  Now that the card is done I think I should have colored the teacup more, but I was taking inspiration from my teacups and they were all white backgrounds.  Now that my wrist is fractured the coloring is going to take longer. 

I added some fine glitter to the wings, as well as my face and my son's face.  He was very sparkly  ;)  Because the card was such a great fold, and I used a MS PATP. I felt like it didn't need alot of embellishments.  I didn't add flowers because I thought they would interfere with the folds.
You can find the instructions for this card over here.  She has some beautiful examples that will inspire you!  My DP is from K & Co.  It is Susan Winget, Botanical.  It has beautiful paper and the great thing is I'm using up and that means I'll be able to buy more without feeling bad about adding to my stash. :)  WAHOO!!  I used some cream colored seam binding from Wild Orchid.  I love this stuff.  It is so pretty and has such a wonderful feel.
I used a stamp from Inkadinkadoo to fill in the edges of the stamped image panel.  Otherwise it looked too blank. 
Here, it is with the "belt" untied. 
Here is a picture of the inside and the writing panel.  The website, I'm sorry, I can't remember her name, gives you all the measurements for the triangles to fill in the empty spaces.  My brain isn't working so good, it got hit pretty hard the other day.  If you go to her blog she has all the instructions. 

I am entering my card in the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Pencil - Anything
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Sparkly & Ribbon
Papertake - Anything
Ribbon Carousel - Anything
Top Tip Tuesday - Anything

Thats about it.  Thanks for taking a peek.  Hopefully I'll be back again soon.

Blessings & Hugs
