Joy Fold Card - C4C #96

It's time to get Crazy! And I'm crazy busy trying to get everything done before I leave for CHA next week. I get to hang out with the Flourishes girls and then the MFT gang--how lucky can you get, right? I feel like a hamster on a wheel right now, though, LOL, so this is going to be short and sweet!

I have another Crazy 4 Challenges card for you today. The lovely Cindy has challenged us to make a Joy Fold Card. It's been a while since I made one of these so it was a fun change. Get all the deets and a link to a tutorial on the C4C blog.

I'm using MFT's Flower Silhouette Die & Stamp set for my focal image and the sentiment. I colored the flowers lightly with Copic markers and popped them up on foam

The oval part of the "closure" was made with part of the Well Worn Die-namics set. Did I mention I love that set? All three parts are so versatile! Love them! OK, back to the card ;-) Then I cut out a strip with one of the ribbons from First Place Award Ribbon Die-namics set for the sentiment. I also added a little butterfly using the Butterflies Die-namics set.

And here's the inside, with another sentiment from the set. 

Sooooo, NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
THEN, you know what to do--we'd love to have you come along and play with us. Just do your thing with the challenge and link it to Mr. Linky on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Please link directly to your project. And, if you upload to a public gallery, please use the key word C4C96.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
