Out of the ordinary

After taking a look at Wild Orchid Crafts challenge this week i decided to take part, this took me out of my comfort zone as the challenge is fancy folds, you had to include at least 2 folds on your card, if you look back at my cards you will see i very rarely do anything but single fold.

I took an 8"x8" card blank and turned it into a zigzag fold. The stamp is 'bloom & grow' by Helz cuppleditch which ive stamped onto splodge Away elegance high res card stock, this card really is amazing for stamping and colouring with any of the brand pens it is so smooth you can't fail to get good results. Ive coloured with promarkers then ive edged all the edges with adirondack ink 'meadow' using my splodge Away mat and ranger blending tool. The papers are a mix of making memories and stamin' up again they have all been edged using the same ink. Ive added flowers from wild orchid crafts, the ribbon is from my stash, ive also added a few dew drops. To finish the card ive edges the main image with gold stickles and highlighted parts with glossy accents, id accidentally got a spot of ink on my image so had to disguise it by drawing a bee, so not all was lost.
this card has been entered into the following challenges:
