Another Flourishes challenge card for you this am- the Tuesday challenge this week is for a fancy fold or motion card. This is a 3D portrait die from Accu Cut that was designed by my friend Vicki Chrisman - www.vickichrisman.blogspot.com
I had some oppses on this one but in the end it turned out ok - I ended up distressing it with a bit of gesso because the background on the inside turned out too dark - I stamped the flower image as a background in walnut stain and it was way too dark so I sponged the gesso over it until it only shows a little and used red instead of walnut stain on the front which looked a lot better - a bit of gesso on the front just to tie it all together.
The stamp is from Flourishes of course - stamped onto tan cardstock and colored with prismacolor pencils. The phrases are also from Flourishes - embossed with red onto the DP and layered to some textured coordinations paper.

Now that I am caught up on my challenges - puppy says its way past time for her walk.....
