Polka Doodles #31: More Than One Fold

Good morning, friends! We're start a new challenge over at the Polka Doodles Challenge Blog. The theme for the fortnight is "More Than One Fold" and just the perfect excuse to try out a new fun fold... or an an old one.

I've decided to make an ol' favourite but long forgotten (by me!) - the Joy Fold card. There's the link to a written and video tutorial over at Splitcoaststampers. All elements on this card is from the Work & Play 10: Country Life CD Collection. I used some ribbon from my stash to keep the card closed.

This digi is also available to download separately. She called Egg Collecting! :) I coloured her with Faber-Castell Polychromos. To ground the image I added a some grass, fussy cut it and adhered the scene to the background paper. Then I tucked the tag behind the roof of the chicken coop.

Here's a look inside. There's room for a short message.
