Penny Black rain or shine


Hi everyone, it Allsorts challenge day again and this week is Emma's turn to host the theme where she would like us to use fancy folds to our cards.

I have gone with a tri fold card (tutorial here) using this really pretty Kaiser DP and Penny Black 40 024 Rain or Shine which I stamped several times, coloured with Copics and decoupaged. Flowers and stick pin from stash, swirls cut with Tim Holtz die and corners punched with Martha Stewart eyelet lace. This is also for the following challenges:

Stampin B's - Old and new (DP old, flowers and beads new)
Pixie Dust Studio - Tie it with a ribbon
Sparkles - Two new things (flowers and beads)
Sweet Stamping - Something different (the tri fold)
