Springy card!

Continuing with my experimentation on card styles, I had a go at a Diamond-Fold card (using a tutorial from Crafty Devils Papercraft website).

Supplies:
Images: "Mudpie's Munch" by House Mouse Designs - coloured with Promarkers, the "Thank You" sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You.
Paper: The striped paper is from Papermania Basics pad, and the spotted paper is from Papermania Capsule Collection "Lemon Sorbet".
Embellishments: The buttons, brads & flower are all from Papermania Capsule Collection "Sunshine".

Challenges:
Pink Gem #15 - Buttons, brads, beads, bows (I went for buttons and brads)
Corrosive Challenge #105 - Distressing
Sentimental Sundays #44 - Anything Goes (plus a sentiment)
House Mouse & Friends #90 - Multifold
Incy Wincy  Designs #83 - Spring is in the air
Dream Valley Challenge #1 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp challenge - 1 image, 2 designer papers, 3 types of embellishment
Charisma Cardz #9 - Four-legged Friends
Cute Card Thursday #154 - Signs of Spring
Dutch Dare Challenge #102 - Who's who in the zoo?
