Global Design Project #GDP005 Color Challenge

Visit the Design Team over at Global Design Project, I'm sure you will find some wonderful projects there to inspire you and give you some ideas for your next card and don't forget to enter the challenge. I have made a Criss Cross Card this time, I know a lot of my followers know me for my More Than One Fold Cards and I haven't been doing them lately, I have been concentrating more on different techniques so I will try and do a few (More Than One Fold) to hopefully give my followers some inspiration. This is a very easy and fast card to  make! You will find this tutorial by Linda Bauwin very easy to follow if you would like to try this type of fold card yourself.

Visit the team over at Global Design Project and check out their awesome creations!

I would also like to introduce you to a new challenge site I have started participating in, "Anything Goes - Just Keep On Creating"!! A great way to show your projects.

TIP USING THE SPIRAL FLOWER DIE: I needed small flowers that would fit on my card without having to make a  box to put the card in, once I cut out the die I then cut off all the scalloped edge with with some scissors, spritzed my die cut with water then continued to roll my flower die as normal - it's great when you want a smaller flower.
