Fancy Enough For Ya?

The challenge theme at One Stitch At A Time this week is "fancy folds"... so I decided to go all out and make a card with fancy folding galore! :)
 
Whaddaya think? :)
 
 
I made an accordion card and I used double-sided card for the base card as both sides would be on view once it was folded. I then added some panels of patterned paper in a contrasting colour.
 
 
I decorated my card with Stitchy's gorgeous Flutterby stamp. I printed the image four times, in two different sizes (I just love the versatility of digi stamps that allows you to do stuff like this), and coloured them with my Promarkers before cutting them out.
 
 
I also added some Stickles on the wings and stamped and embossed a greeting.
 
 
I love how this card looks. It folds nicely flat for posting (am going to send it to my cousin) but when it's all opened out it looks really striking.
 
 
You don't have to use a Stitchy Bear products to enter our challenge but if you do you'll be in with a chance to win our main prize. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into a draw to win a $3 gift voucher to the Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet.
 
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Graph'It Marker Challenge - Bright and Beautiful Birthday Bonanza
Left of Center Challenges - Use a Sentiment on the Front
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes

I would say that's a fancy fold. Very beautiful. I think the hummingbird was the perfect stamp for such a fancy card.
