My first joy fold card

I've often thought of making a joy fold card, but have never got round to doing it, so when I saw that this was the challenge this week for Squigglefly 51, I decided to have a go at making one.

The paper is Prima Indeed ollection 'rasberry pastures' - part of a kit I got a while ago from Bubbly Funk. I thought this went nicely with the copics colouring of the Squigglefly hummingbird. The flower at the bottom lefthand corner enables the corner of the flap to be tucked in.

I apologise that the photos are even worse than usual! - the light here is poor today (typical BH Monday) so I had to use flash.



This is also fo:

Sundays with Crissy 4: 'layers'
Moving along with the times 48: 'folds'
Frosted designs: 'photo inspiration'
Sunday stamper 105: 'wing of a dove' - or, in this case, hummingbird
Totally ggorjuss 32: 'wings'
PaperPlay 21: 'up in the air' - the hummingbird
Daisy doodles: 'anything goes' - include a digi
Lucy's cards 10: 'digital'
Bee crafty 30: 'something new' - first time I've made a joy fold card
Pollycraft 46: 'hidden message' - the birthday wishes inside the flap
Hand full of stamps 29: 'ruffle some feathers'

In the pink second birthday

This card uses Papertake sketch 41:

This week's Dancing in pajamas TCP challenge calls for us to use something wooden - I thought I'd got some wooden hearts, but found I must have used them all - then I remembered that I had some wooden numbers, so this is the original state of the number 2:

before I daubed it with Adirondack acrylic gold dabber.

The papers are Forever friends 'with love' , except for the lilac piece across the bottom, which is Making Memories. The teddy with balloon is a FF stamp coloured with copics (and I confess that the butterflies had to be included because of a smudge mark!).



It's also for:
