Birgitta and an accordion fold

This is very similar to an easel card, but a little different. I was just playing around with a white piece of paper and started making an accordion type of fold, flop, flop....one, two, three, four, and this was my card:

Birgitta

The little girl on the tree stump reminded me of the outdoors, with all the cute little flowers and mushrooms, so I paired her with some fresh and pretty Webster's Pages and some other knick knacks worth of papers and embellies. Here's what it looks like at an angle:

We are enjoying a tremendously quiet day today at home and resting.....Mom and child have a touch of a cough but nothing severe....I'm sure it was from the extreme weather change as of late. Back to the grind tomorrow with school and work for everyone.

Papers - Bo Bunny, Webster's Pages.
EK Success Punch.
Making Memories gems.
Copic Markers.
White Cardstock.

So wonderful Tiff! I always love to see what creative spin you will add to your next masterpiece....this one is so full of charm, love it! We missed you on Saturday, Sally's class was really fun.
