Fancy Folded Pocket.

The New Theme/ Colour
for my Butterfly Challenge is

Verb: Folds  = bend( something flexible and relatively flat)
over on itself so that one part of it covers another

Here is my inspiration for you.


The image is a LOTV from their Set 3 Wild flowers.
I trimmed down and adhered to pink card stock die cut 
using Crafts -Too Scalloped edge.
Base card is pink card stock folded to 5.75 x 6.75.
Folded pocket is a sheet of double sided design paper
cut just slightly smaller than the card size. 
I measured down one long side to find the middle point
and then folded each side in to form the triangle shape.
I then concertina folded a strip of left over paper to
make a featured pleat which I hooked over the outside
edge before adhering  the pocket to the front .
End of folded strip was tucked inside the pocket and a large
pearl added for embellishment. 
Butterflies were die cut using  Clearly Besotted
small butterfly wishes from fushia coloured
paint chips.  Pearls added to the bodies.
Sentiment is a sliver foil sticker.

Oh wow, this is so pretty. I love the vase of flowers that you used, it's a great image. The fold is not something I would have ever thought to do. You are sure creative. The accordian folds are a perfect focal point to the fancy fold. Great card.
