The Next Challenge Is On at Our Vintage Affair

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Now this was the challenge set by the very talented Polly ofArtfulwings for Our Vintage Affair.
It is a napkin fold card, and although easy to make, did take some time, but oh so worth it.  

If you want to see a tutorial on this you can pop over to

This month we are sponsored by the

Here is my design team inspirational piece
The starting point is a 12 x 12 piece of white card.  This is then scored and folded to create this amazing effect.  The papers are all from the GCD Studios Ella Blue stack of papers, some of the pages are textured but all have an amazing linen look and feel to them.  The MS punch is my new one from Grimsby Crafts.  The frame for the image is a Nellie Snellen Eastern Rectangle Die.  The image from the good old www.  The roses on this creation are from the Hobby House.  The creation was distressed with Antique Linen Tim Holtz distress ink.  The ribbon is from my stash.

Here is the opened up creation 
The sentiment inside is a MSE (although sorry you cannot see it enough to read it)
Here is a close up of the image
Anyway although it looks difficult it is not - I would definitely give it a go
