Four

We have a new challenge over at Crafty Creations for the next two weeks and it is a fun theme.

 

Four – yep that is the theme, your creation has to have 4 of something on it at least once.

 

Our sponsor is SLS Digital and I have used one of their images called Pretty Girl which has been coloured in with Copic Markers.

There are also 4 pearls on the flowers in the girls hair.

 

Here is a close up of the image:

I have created a Fancy Fold card which is called a Six Folded Card and the tutorial can be found here.

 

The beautiful paper used is from Frabscraps and the cardstock used is Primrose Petal, Sahara Sand, Very  Vanilla.

 

Here is a picture of the card before it is opened:

ccc fold 2

 

I have used both sides of the paper and you will see the other side in the following shots:

 

ccc folds 3
