Work of Art Meets World of Dreams -- Meeting two challenges

Once in a while you come across a wonderful technique or fold that you know you want to try yourself.  That's what happened when I saw Belinda Neil's Double Diamond Fold Card.  I knew I had to try it myself and I knew I wanted to enter my project in a challenge or two.

***And I have to crow about this!  I just won the SUO Challenge Top 3 for this special-fold card.  That is a real honour and so exciting!***

***I also found out that I won the Around the World Stampin' Up! Challenge Top 3 as well.***

For the Around the World Stampin' Up! Challenge #20, they're asking for projects using Blackberry Bliss, Calypso Coral and Hello Honey.  For the S-U Only Challenge #100, they're asking for projects that meet one of their 100 challenges.  I chose to do their Challenge #59, Fun or Unusual Folds.  Done in the colours from the Around the World challenge, this card will meet both challenge parameters.

I chose to have the base for my card in Blackberry Bliss.  I did all my stamping with the World of Dreams stamp set in Blackberry Bliss ink on Very Vanilla cardstock.  I also did background stamping with the Work of Art stamp set using Hello Honey and Calypso Coral.  For the side panels I also added another layer of Hello Honey cardstock.

For my sentiment I used the word bubble from Just Sayin' but in the centre I stamped "Love you always" from the Something to Say stamp set.


The real impact for this card is the fold but the colours really make it come to life as well.  I'm really in love with these stamp sets.  They are so very versatile---and that's what makes a great stamp in my opinion.
