Triangle Joyfold Card

Good morning, peeps and have you got that Friday feeling? It's the start of the weekend and it also means it's time for another challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. The challenge this week is for you to 'case' a DT member which, if you're not familiar with the expression means that you need to make a card after the style of one of the members of the Design Team - quite an interesting challenge!
Here's my offering for this one:

I was keen to make one of these triangle joyfold cards as soon as I saw it on the talented Marlena's blog. It's basically an opening criss-cross card with an extra little card inserted in the centre but it's a fun design to follow and if you follow the link to Marlena's blog, it'll take you straight to her instructions on how to make it.
I decided to use this really cute Tilda with balloon - she looks a little wistful don't you think? I've coloured her with the usual Copics and Prisma pencils and used a Martha Stewart punch around the page as a background for her.

The same punch has been used to create a jotting panel for the inside of the small card. I'm sorry that this photo is a bit dark, I must have got the lighting wrong.

I do hope you'll take up the challenge, peeps - there's a super prize up for grabs from Digi's with Attitude and I'm sure that whole of the DT will be intrigued to see what you produce!

I hope you've got something nice planned for the weekend although, looking at the weather forecast, it had better be something you can do indoors! Is it really Summer? Maybe Summer's coming to the party a little late and she'll be along soon -let's hope so anyway!

Stamps: Magnolia 'Tilda with balloon' stamped with Memento 'London Fog'. Slice of cake from a Kelly Panacci plate and the 'Happy Birthday' greeting is from an anonymous clear plate in my stash!
DPs: Prima 'Sweet Fairy' pad
Dies: Magnolia Doohickey swirl and leaves
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts (of course!)
Pearls: The Hobby House
Punch: Martha Stewart Cherry Blossom PATP
Ribbon: from my stash
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E21, R11, R20, R30
Hair: E23, E25, E27, E53 + Dark Brown Prisma pencil
Dress: R81, R83, R85 + Raspberry Prisma pencil
Socks, hairbans, dress trim: V000, V91, V12, V15 + Dark purple Prisma pencil
Shoes: BV20, BV23, BV25 + Cool Grey 90% Prisma pencil
Balloon: YG03, YG11, YG25 + Marine Green Prisma pencil

Well, that's all from me for today. I'll be working on loads of class samples and there's a box full of Clarity Stamps awaiting my attention - I need to complete those samples well in advance of the next TV show. I don't think I'll be getting bored, do you?
