Z-Fold leaf Card

     I bought these orange doilies at the Dollar tree a couple of weeks ago. I  decided that it was time to make something using them. I'm really loving Z fold cards lately so i decided to make a leaf Z fold. I struggled with what to put on the front though. My daughter suggested the stickles and i'm glad that i listened to her on that because it really makes the leaf shape stand out. The image that i finally chose is from Designed to Delight.
     I won't be able to post a card tomorrow.  Tomorrow is the beginning of the Covered Bridge festival in Parke County.  If you are from Indiana, you know what i'm talking about. It is Awesome!! My mom, sister and i always go the first day. I have for years and we can't break tradition. LOL.

  3. What a FABULOUS creation! I love the Z-fold, and that you've used a gorgeous leaf shape. I've only had one autumn in the US/Canada, and vicariously relive it with my scrapbooked photos (very often)! I hope you enjoy the Covered Bridge Festival.
