CropStop Challenge #43-Unique Fold

It's Thursday (just in case it slipped your mind, haha), and time for another AWESOME CropStop Challenge. The challenge this week is to make a card with a UNIQUE FOLD (no A2 or square cards).

I tend to be a creature of habit and my usual go-to card is a 6x6 square so when I saw this challenge I wasn't sure what to do. As I was filing some things, I came across a Z-Fold Christmas Card my Auntie Val mailed us last December....then the "AH HA" moment happened. I've been saving that card because I wanted to give it a try!! Then I saw a Z-Fold card on Katie's Blog with a punched border, and decided it would be the perfect opportunity to use my new Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly Edge Punch that I just bought from CropStop....LOVE IT! (I've been on the hunt for this butterfly border set for a while and finally found it!)

I colored my Maggies a while ago so I can't remember the colors I used. The double-sided dp is from Basic Grey Indie Bloom. Did you see the cute Heather Flower Soft I used in the basket of Tilda with Flowing Hair?? I think it adds a special touch. :) The red rose is from Recollections and the pink flowers came from my friend Cebelica...thanks sweetie!!

The white doily below is also from my friend Cebelica....she's so awesome! I inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. The sentiments on the front and back panels came from the same set, Heartfelt Creations Classic Message....this is my favorite set!!

Here's a list of all the supplies I used from the CropStop Store:
Memento Tuxedo Black
Copics & Chalk
Heather Flower Soft
Stardust Stickles
1/4" wide Scor-Tape

Spellbinders Heart Circles
Heartfelt Creations-Classic Message
Worn Lipstick Distress Ink

Don't forget you can link up your creation to the CropStop Challenge Blog for a chance at a $15 gift certificate!! And, if you order anything through the store, you can use my discount code, CTRB-2 for an additional 10% off.....who couldn't use some extra savings?!?!
