Iris folding for a change

Good morning friends,
I hope all is well with you at the start of this lovely Easter weekend. It is just such perfect weather at the moment here in our part of South Africa. Late summer/early autumn with warm sunny days, early morning crisp air and gorgeous evenings, what more could we ask for.... I suppose a little shower of rain during the night would be most welcome.

I hadn't done any iris folding for a long time, and thought the way to get back into it was to do a swap. So I signed up for one and was a little worried as we have had some serious postal issues, but am happy to say I received my card from New Zealand and today I had a message to say my card arrived safely in The Netherlands....a big relief.

This was my card, and I must say I found it a little tricky, but I think only because I was a little out of it. I was quite happy with the result.

I will try and find some challenges to enter a little later.

Beautiful iris folding! Haven't done this in a while but it used to be one of my favourite techniques. I have so many iris folding papers stored in a binder I really should do an iris fold again!

This is a lovely card, very elegant. I haven't done iris folding in years but it's such a fabulous technique.

This is really gorgeous, Ursula. I've never tried iris folding - guess I'm a little intimidated by it. I don't think I could ever make anything quite as lovely as your card!
