The Accordion Fold

Morning everyone.  Hope you had a fabulous weekend.  Not a whole lot happened here.  We found a new grocery store (which was absolutely amazing!), and shopped around at a place called Sail which turned out to be similar to an REI just without all the mountain climbing stuff we were used to seeing in Washington :)  It was nice to discover those 2 stores.

This week at Digi Makeover our challenge is easy for you!  It's Anything Goes!
I decided to try a different style card this week.  It's an accordion fold, which looked difficult at first but turned out to be super easy :)
This is what the front looks like closed. I used the sweet image Sprout from Paper Makeup and colored her in with my pencils.  Chalked up some clouds in the sky and added a few roses to the corner.  Of course, I spritzed them with my shimmer mists so they sparkled :)
When you untie the bow, the accordion opens up to show another image and the sentiment!  The inside image is Rose from Paper Makeup.  I paired the 2 images together because it felt like Sprout was planting the flower and then Rose was enjoying what grew :)
The sentiment is printed off and cut out with a spellbinder.
I don't have the card fully mounted onto a card base yet, but the inside is decorated to say "Happy Birthday."

I hope you will join us this week!  The only requirement is that you use a digi!  And be sure to check out the rest of the Makeup Artists creations, as they are lovely :)
