Hello everyone.
It another Technique Challenge at Try Stamping (or not) on Tuesday.

This months challenge is Fancy Folds.

I have chosen an interior pop out (expansion) card for this challenge.

I started with a digi stamp by Bugaboo - Giraffe Blocks. .  I colored them all in colored pencils on this run.
For the image on the front cover, I edged it as well with Vintage Photo and Tea Stain distress ink and then wrapped it with brown and white twine.
The paper is by Recollections and I have Neuvo drops scattered in cream.

The interior digi's were all in colored pencil as well with the exception of the little lady bug.  She's in ink to pop her out.
The sentiment is stamped with two different sets: one from Inkadinkado and the other with a stamp from the bargain bin (I swear the stamps in the bargain bin just call to me 'please take me home') - With both I used Walnut Stain distress ink and clear embossing powder to shine it up and make it stand out.
The mechanics of the card are all with Kraft cs and the interior lining is with the same paper as the front to tie it all together.
I edged the folded center with faux stitching and a white gel pen.

It all folds and twists down into a standard A2.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges if I may please:
