Paper Sundaes Challenge #86 - Finishing Touches

Hope everyone has had a fabulous week!  Mine has been super crazy with back to school preparations and last minute school clothes shopping for my son that I couldn't wait for this weekend to arrive.  Now it's almost Sunday (I'm typing up my post early) and I wish the weekend was even longer!  There is never enough hours in a day to get everything I need to done!  I just got back from a wonderful family dinner and I ate way too much food but it was a fabulous day with family and the weather was fantastic too.

Well enough about me!!  It's time for another Paper Sundaes Challenge #86 which we are calling "Finishing Touches" which means we would like to see you decorate the inside of your card!  Our sponsor is the fabulous MFT (My Favorite Things) Stamps this week and they have the most adorable stamps & fabulous dies called Die-namics which are really fabulous.  I have a bunch I'm waiting for to be delivered and would be stalking the mailman if I could!!  For my card this week I decided I wanted to do something different so I created a tri-fold pocket card from these instructions I found over at SCS.
Here's the outside:
And the inside:
I really enjoyed making this card!  Not only did I use this super cute Pure Innocence Stamp called "Flower Girl"  Now this sweet little girl was supposed to be holding a flower but I had a little cutting accident so now she doesn't :(

I used some of my favorite design paper from Bo Bunny's Timepiece collection for this card and even did some paper piecing of her outfit.  I coloured the rest of the image with copics which are also available over at MFT.    I used up some flowers I had on hand and the two larger ones were airbrushed with copics to match a little bit better.  I added some pearl flourishes and the sentiment from the same set to complete.  I'm definitely making more of these tri-fold pocket cards in the near future as it was really easy!  

I hope you'll play along with us this week over at Paper Sundaes as there are some beautiful DT creations this week for inspiration plus a fabulous prize from MFT for one lucky winner!  I also can't wait to see how you decorate the inside of your cards too :)

I will be entering my card into the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - Multi-fold cards (I'm hoping my Tri-Fold Pocket card counts)

Very pretty Crystal! I have never made a trifold card but just might need to and you are really tempting me to buy a copic airbrush!

I love the colour combination you have used for this card. That paper piecing looks perfect (cause I know how tricky it is to cut out tiny images). And you have inspired me to try a tri-fold card. Ta for that! hugs jenny x
