Rose Challenge for January


     Good morning, fellow bloggers!  After a short break, the Roses are back to share a monthly challenge.  This month, Betty Rose, has asked us to do a fancy fold card, to ease us back on schedule!


     I saw this image tucked deep in my computer stash, and just had to color him up.  He has no name or designer attached to the image. Next I went searching for tutorials on different folds, and came up with this center stair step card.  I have never made on before. Here are the supplies I used.

Card and designer paper:  from my scraps
Dies:  Spellbinders Labels Fourteen, Memory Box Puffy Clouds
Punches:  a teeny tiny fish punch that I had borrowed from my friend Carol
Stamps:  cattails, geese, and bird by Stampscapes, Sentiment by Rubbernecker Stamps
Ink:  is Copic markers, Memento Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic chalk ink for sponging
Embellishments are Diamond Stickles, and a snail brad

     Please be sure to visit the other Roses that have linked up for today's challenge!  A list with links can be found on my sidebar.~~~~~~~~~~~>

      Have a glorious Sunday, and I will see you soon.

Haven't you decorated your card to the max -- love all those fluffy clouds, the bright, beautiful colors, and the bucket of fish! Although I must admit, those kiddos without complete faces scare me a little!!

Really adorable card, so nicely done...and it's done in my favorite fold...Mary Anne this fold is addicting.

Now this is clever and CUTE, and I can't believe you colored those teeny tiny fish to such perfection! I had to enlarge and look twice! You must have colored them with a magnifying glass and a toothpick! They look so real!!! WTG!!

Mary Anne,
