Can you believe it! Another week has flown by and it's time for a new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil. My wonderful DT Sistah Debbie has chosen a theme of "Fantasy or Halloween" for this week's challenge. I'm really not a Halloween person so I decided to play with one of Mo's adorable fairies. This little sweetie has a ladybug friend.
For my card I used this great sketch from Bearly Mine.
The background really caught my eye and I thought it would be a cool effect if I could make that back panel textured. So I broke out my Martha Stewart scoreboard and went to work. Since I was going to be accordion folding I knew 6 x 6 wasn't going to work unless I wanted to piece so I dug out an old K & Company 12 x 12 pad that I love and used half of one of the sheets. I just scored at random intervals on the board. Didn't want it to be uniform, but rather match the different sized stripes in the sketch more or less. I like how it turned out and it was pretty simple to do. I cut apart a Memory Box Fresh Foliage die cut to make it fit better and added some flowers using a MS hydrangea punch.
Here's a close up of the bug lover.
