A card of many folds challenge at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

Hope you are all coping with our decline into autumn - where did summer go 
or when did it come really - we've had some lovely sunny days
but a lot of rain here lately - booo!

Anyway it's time for another challenge at 

The Paper Shelter

This week our theme is 

A card of many folds

I've been so busy these past couple of months 
you might have noticed that I haven't been around much lately

What with the normal summer holiday time and ordinary family things
mainly I've been scribing for my son Tom (who is disabled)
He's just a few weeks away now from completing his masters degree
at Newcastle University - but many months have gone into his dissertation
and I've shared the journey - and we're still travelling on : )

Sooo I decided to make the quickest easiest card I could
using one of the pre- coloured  paper and image sets
available at 

She's called Autumn Trends available here

I cut two sets of papers to make my easel card 
stuck it onto Kraft card and a tan mat 
then just cut out the cute little girl in the frame which I raised on 3d glue gel
The die for the sentiment is an old spellbinders label die
I stamped a sentiment from a heartfelt creations set
and gave a little definition to the labels with TH distress ink in Tea Dye
and the ribbon from is my stash - easy as that!

The image is quite large standing top to bottom of my 6 inc card
it makes a great statement card - in pretty quick time
When I have more crafty time she's one I'm looking forward to colouring
 - so much lovely detail

As always there is a fab prize up for grabs at TPS

Hope you'll come and join in with our challenge this week
