Happy Friday Everyone!! The weekend is here!! Woo hoo!!

Today I have two creations to share with you.

First I would like to share a new challenge at Wags n Whiskers!!

Today I would like to share the new challenge at Wags n Whiskers hosted by the sweet and talented Debs!!  Debs challenges us to create a card with more than one fold.  Time to get out of the rut of the traditional square or rectangle cards and get creative.  We hope you can all join in!!

Wags n Whiskers challenges are every other week.

This will give you more time to be able to participate with our challenges.

One random participant will win a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber stamp of your choice.
You can still use any stamp you would like, but if you use a Wags 'n Whiskers image, you will also be entered into a separate drawing for a free Wags 'n Whiskers Digital Stamp.
This week has been fun making a variety of untraditional cards ...I made a double pocket card, an easel card and now today.....a diagonal fold card!!!
For my card, I used the adorable Furry Friends image from Wags n Whiskers.  I colored it with copics.  The paper is from K& co. Sweet Nectar.There is lots of gold stitching although it is hard to see in the picture.I am sharing a few pictures with you since it has so many sides.
The first is with the band on it...
 The second is of the card with the band next to it.  The lace is from a RAK from my dear friend Sabrina.  Thanks Sabrina!!  The ribbon is from May Arts.
 The third is when it is partway open...
 This is the inside...The sentiment comes from Our Daily Bread Designs Daffodil Tags.
It was embossed in gold and framed with scraps of gold glitter paper.  The flowers are created with the Martha Stewart twig punch and buttons.  The fence is also created with a Martha Stewart punch.
 This is the back when the band is on it.  I left a little give to it so it could act as a stand for the card.
Card Recipe:
Paper: K and Co. Sweet Nectar, White (the gold paper is just white paper embossed in gold)
Accessories: lace from Rak, May Arts Green Ribbon, Martha Stewart Fence Border Punch, Martha Stewart twig punch, gold thread, gold embossing powder, Provocraft Spots embossing folder, Martha Stewart Loops border punch, buttons from stash.

My next creation is a little less cutesy and more for a teen.  I used the fun Kenny K Uptown Angel rubberstamp available at Whimsy stamps. I colored her with copics and used the sketch from the Kenny K challenge blog.

 The dp is also K and Co.  The # 18 was typed on my pc and punched using one of my SU punches..  The image is framed with a Spellbinders Bead it die.  The lace is another item from a RAK from my dear friend Sabrina. ( What a lot of treasures she sent me!!)  The ribbon bow is made of May Arts Silk ribbon and tied with my bow easy.  All the  dp layers are embossed with different embossing folders but it is hard to see in the photo.  The corner scrolls are created from the inside left overs of one of my EK Success border punches.

Card Recipe:
Stamps:Kenny K Uptown Angel rubberstamp available at Whimsy stamps.
Paper: K and Co., brown and white
Accessories: SU 1 inch circle punch, May Arts Ribbon-Silk Mauve, EK Success Fleur De Lis Punch, pink gems, brown lace
Embossing folders: Provocraft Swirls, Provocraft Spots

I hope you enjoyed my creations today.  Thanks so much for your comments.  I enjoy reading them.

Have a great weekend!

Wonderful cards! I like the papers on the upper one. I think the papers fits well with the idea. The bloomy paper I imagine as the garden and the squared as wallpaper inside. Love the idea with the fence like a band around. Thanks for sharing :) Have a wonderful weekend!

Thanks for dropping by my blog for a visit. I've missed talking to you! I wanted to let you know that those corner dies that you were asking me about I believe are sizzix and came in a package of 4 that I got last year at Michaels. They probably still have them. I love corner dies :)
