Fancy folds and circles!

Evening everyone I'm just back from Rock choir and thought I'd do a quick post to cover the MMM and the Alpha challenge as I'm away for the weekend:)
The MMM challenge is Fancy folds and that's something that really appeals to me so come and see what I made:




Apologies for the photo quality the colours are a bit off! I like the way this card folds and I used core'dinations sage green card and some Prima botanical for the front and insert. I embossed the front flap and added some gold paste to highlight it. Ifanyone is interested I can let you have the details on how to make it, it's very easy:)

The Alpha challenge this week is the letter W and we had to incorporate circles. I chose WESTMINSTER as my word and used a CI stamp onto a background of distress inks. I added some clock faces and punched out a few circles.




Thanks for taking the time to visit and hopefully leaving a comment:)

I love your card Val, and would like to know how you made it.

Your Westminster page is very colourful, and the holes are great circles.

Great card and fancy fold Val, enjoy your 'Charlie sitting'...that made me laugh!. We did our 'Charlie sitting' yesterday and he was an angel as usual, even gave me two kisses on the lips....I just melted of course...even though they were very slobbery ! Mummy was jealous as he has only ever given kisses to his daddy before lol :) Viv xx
