A shaped or fancy fold card at The Outlawz.

Good morning to you all,
Another cool, cloudy day here, but we have had thunder and lightning and a bit of rain since early morning, so hopefully it will continue into the day. I hope the sun is shining where you are.

Another Tuesday has come and that means  a Colour challenge at The Outlawz.                                               
This week our teamie Ina, has given us a lovely challenge. A gorgeous colour palette and the twist is a shaped or fancy fold card. Now that might be a bit out of some comfort zones, but that is what a challenge is for.
Once again the sponsor is   All Dressed up Stamps and the DT have all made some stunning shaped and fancy fold cards with their images. I invite you all to go and have a look, then come and join in the fun. There are even some prizes up for grabs.

My card is quite a simple one. It is actually a gatefold with a centre cut out.

I used the image Abi Ballerina, which is a freebie on the All Dressed up site. Coloured it with Distress inkpads and lots of glitter, cut it out and mounted onto a diecut.

The patterned paper is from an old Tattered Teddy range ..Especially for you. I ran the blue card through my CB with an embossing folder and added some gems to the centres

The sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps.

Finished it all off with a bow and some pearls.

Will enter it in some challenges:
