Fussy and Fancy Challenge #177-"Different Folds or Shaped Cards"

Good Friday morning dear blogging friends!

Is everyone looking forward to the weekend...I know that I am!!

So let's start the weekend off with some Friday fun with a new Fussy and Fancy challenge!!!  For the next two weeks our wonderful and talented hostess Annie has chosen "Different Folds or Shaped Cards" as her theme...I myself found this such a fantastic many possibilities!!!!  And we have a fabulous sponsor...Wild Orchid Crafts!

Here is what I came up with...
please click on the first image for a closer view/slideshow...
I started with a 6X6 card square card...
took a 6X12 piece of the mauve cardstock...punched the top edge into a lace border using a Martha Stewart punch...then scored at the 1/2 inch and folded into a fan shape...
next I cut a 4X12 piece of DP...distressed the top edge...scored as above and folded into a fan...backed the top with a tiny bit of cheesecloth and glued it onto the larger fan...
I made an easel out of the front of the card and attached the fan...
added my image...framed with lace from Wild Orchid Crafts and attached to the fan...
then I decorated with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts...
another view... 
 this little sweet heart is a Sherri Baldy Bestie...
"Pyjama Time Pipa"...
coloured with my copics...
 the bottom part of the card...
 the upper...
 the inside...
I left the sentiment die cut blank as I'm not sure where this is going as yet...
I added the "sweet pea" tag with a bark heart...

And there you have my fan card!!  Now it's time for you to get busy and join us but first won't you check out the fabulous inspiration that my talented teamies have for you over at Fussy and Fancy!!
