Be happy

I made this for a NZ cardswap which was for a fancy fold card.  I hope you liked it Dawn and will try it sometime yourself.

I used lots of papers, the two feature ones from a Forever in Time "fresh" stack, but with other bits from my scrappy bin stash as well for the flowers.  The flower layers are punched, wet, scrunched, dried then unravelled, some inked, then layered.

This has to be one of my favourite folds.  I love all the angles in this fold, which seem to give it an element of movement, and creates pockets to pop things in.  (Called a twist-fold by most people or a twisted card by Splitcoaststampers).
