Country Chick

 Am I ready for summer or what? :-)
This is a first for me. Always exciting.
 I have been long admiring these fancy fold cards and after seeing Tine's awesome version (check it out here) ,I knew I had to try it for myself.
Tine passed on a blogger's tutorial to me, you can find it here if you want to have a go yourself.
As you can see, I kept it pretty simple, just in case I had to ditch it in the bin halfway through.

The papers are all digital (another new thing for me, thanks to prodding by fellow bloggy buddy Yenni. Thanks, Yenni! I love it!) and the image is Sarah Kay, colored with distress inks.
A close up:

So that's what Ive been up to!

I would like to enter this in:
OSAAT: Anything Goes
I Did It Creations: Creative Folds
The Paper Players: fave color combo
Stamps RUs :anything goes

A fancy fold card! Cool! I searched for step cards on the internet last week, because I wanted to make one - you have been faster! :-)
Yes, you´re ready for summer! (Did the blue Mexican sea inspire you a little bit?)
Have a nice day,
