LOVE YOURSELF {Scrapping 4 Fun GDT}

{GDT Scrapping 4 Fun}

What a surprise when I was one of the Featured Artists for Scrapping 4 Fun Challenge no.12 and got invited by the lovely Rachelle to be a guest designer for them. Their current challenge no.15 is ANYTHING GOES using a Stamped or Digi Image. 

I used this cute image from DigiStamps4Joy which is called ANGELS 3 R WE and can be purchased here.  

So with no further ado, here is my creation with no surprises at all, its another centre step card. The sentiment is from Create with TLC.  The image and sentiment were coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The folded embellishments were created with a shape from the T69 {Doing Life} Template (see template and TUTORIAL below)The design paper is from BasicGrey and the brads and buttons are from my stash.

So hop on over to SCRAPPING 4 FUN and have a look at me featuring as guest designer as well as their Design Team's gorgeous creations, and oh yes, don't forget to enter the challenge.

Here is a tutorial for the folded embellishments on this card.  You can use any similar shape and do the same folding technique with it:
