Pile It On Challenge # 09 - Make it a Fun Fold

Welcome to another challenge at Pile it On! This week we are making cards with a fun or 'fancy' fold (think gate folds, easel cards, step cards, etc.). This week our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp! I made a gate fold card with this adorable digi from A Day for Daisies:
Here it is upright, so you can better see how it opens:
The sentiment is from Whimsical Designs 'Whimsical Fun Vol. 1' set. I used Elegant Edges to cut out the Stamp-shaped mat for the Sentiment stamp, and inked the edges with chalk ink. Then I added some liquid pearls for a little extra somethin'. I think I am addicted to this stuff, lol!
I found these adorable flower shaped buttons in my stash, and added some bakers twine.
I hope you like my project! Please come and join us with your fancy folded creations, I can't wait to see all the inspirational things you come up with!
