Here is my take on Debi's challenge, it is a stepper card so definatly 3 folds.....and traditional colours

I have used the Polka Doodles cd" here comes christmas " for the background paper which I have cut up and decoupaged,the topper is a tag mounted on a bit of mirri card and some glitter for santas fur.. ...sorry the light is not good but its so dull here..even the daylight lamp isnt doing the card justice.....looking forward to going round all your blogs  later.

Hope that you will pop across to the Polka Doodles blog site to see all the wonderful cards the design team have created and enter a card for this lovely challenge

I used the wonderful Polks Doodles CD sugarplum daisy and decoupaged the image up a bit of glitter on her wings.....the frame for the easel card and the flowers and leaves are Marianne dies with
Tim Holtz distress ink stencil through the dies.
.the sentiment is from the Polka doodles rubber stamp set Maggie....hope you like it and are inspired to join our challenge.

using my new heartfelt creations delicate aster dies...they need cutting with wax paper as they are very difficult to get out of the die,the stamp is a creative expressions one that has thinking of you on it....the butterfly is the spellbinder les papillions 1...the background is couture creations embossing folder " tied together."...with cosmic shimmer glue dots...
Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
