Y&FH Challenge #14 - Multiple Folds

Hello my friends,
As I write this post my heart feels a little heavy for the tragedy that happened at the Boston Marathon today.  Keep those families and their loved ones in your thoughts and prayers.

Sunday we started a new challenge at Yumi & Fumi Handmade.  For the next two weeks we'd like to see Multiple folds in your card.  There are a lot of different variations to choose from.  Stop by the blog to see Rosie's cute spring-like gatefold card featuring Yumi with Birdie.  It reminds me that Spring is trying it's best to push through.

I had so many issues with this one.  Of course I couldn't try to do something simple, had to try something different!  I did pick my image and they were pretty fast to color.  Then I had to figure out what folds I wanted to do.  Well here's what I ended up with.  Not one I'd try again, but for this one time...  Here it is featuring Fumi with Turtle...

Now I know looking at it straight on you can't see any folds.  Just a triangle on the bottom right?  Well here's the side view of the card...

The folds are the triangles!  {LOL}  It's all part of the dark brown cardstock.  (Yea, told ya! LOL!)  I added the sunflower paper to add something over it.  Unfortunately what I tried to do just didn't work out on paper as it did in my head! LOL!  I'm going to give this another try and see if maybe I can come up with something different.  I think the only thing going for it is the image.  =D

Hope you can play along with us.  We're still holding out on the prize, but once we decide we'll let you know.   Speaking of prizes, have you seen our Spread the Love event?  We're in our 2nd week of events and some fun stuff up for grabs.  Stop by the Y&FH blog to see the details.  I have a cute badge at the top of my blog on the right side bar.  Feel free to click on it to go directly to the post.  And then please feel free to help us Spread the Love by sharing the badge on your blog.  We're happy to announce that the GIVEAWAY for Week #2 is up on our Facebook page.  There is a link HERE, where you can enter.

Have a great evening!  Will hopefully be back to blogging and posting now that my big project is done.  Will get to share pictures of that soon.  Mahalo for sticking around with me if you're still here. I'm truly grateful!

I think your card turned out beautifully. I like the clean look. Those clouds you created behind the image are fab. I must learn how to do this! And the image is so darn cute! Plus, I think the sentiment finishes your card perfectly.
Hugs! xx
