Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--Fancy Folds

What a fun Challenge our super talented Pat came up with for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge this week--Fancy Folds.  I  used this fold a couple of years ago and loved it...but I kind of forgot about it until this challenge and I wanted to use it for these images:

The fold is called a Shutter Tri-Fold and this particular version is a full card front .  The creator of the template is Bonnie Szwalkiewicz and the link to the post and template I followed is here.  I colored the Carolers Three with copics and added styrofoam snow and bakers twine before I mounted it on Bo Bunny Christmas dp.   For the narrow tri fold sections I used other portions I used the reverse side of the dp for the blue section onto which I have tied a piece of lace and more bakers twine.  A trio of buttons are on the blue middle section.
On the light dp sections top and bottom I added paper roses .  My Chimney Sweep which was also colored with copics and then cut out in a more rounded style to go on the very right side of the card.  Here is a close up of the Chimney Sweep:

Isn't he just the most adorable little guy.  I loved coloring him.  I see a few Christmas Cards with him on them !!!!
Be sure to stop by the Mo's Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the DT chose for their Fancy Folds...I can't wait to see !!!  Stop by the store and pick up some new images and play along with the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful creative day.

Fun fold. It provides so many areas to "play". I agree that the little chimney sweep is a precious lad.
