Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Fancy Folds!

The Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this week is awesome and the hostess is Paola who chose the theme, create a card with fancy folds.  Well, I don't know how fancy they are but I always like to make this card:

Wouldn't this little" Shy" be a perfect Thank you card?!?  I chose the dp first as I always use double sided cardstock for this project.  It is made from 1 8 1/2 X 11 sheet.  The instructions for this project are on SplitCoast Stampers  Resources section.  It is called a Diagonal Double pocket card.

Because I chose the dp first, which I seldom do, I colored Shy's little dress to match the seafoam green of the dp.  Instead of sponging around the outside of the die as I usually do I used two different color copic markers to create a golden ray behind Shy.  I like the way it turned out.  Did I mention she was colored with copic markers, I'm sure you were wonderfing LOL.

I used my new MS border punch for the loopy border on the edge of each diagonal fold, two white grosgrain ribbons with knot bows, a few brads to hold the pieces together and my sweet Shy angel is ready to present a tag message added to the pocket, or a gift card would fit nicely for a Birthday gift.

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT projects, I'm anxious to see them all myself.  I haven't had a chance to peek yet... 

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to stop by the store and see what Mo has added, and you just know you can't live without :).
