No No Challenge - Card Holder

Today I am sharing the card holder that I made for my MIL for Christmas.  The tutorial you will find on Stempeleinmaliens blog site.  I have used Cardmadfairy Creations digital flower images for the cards and the holder.  Also tried to stick to the same papers and card to give a bit of a theme....not something I normally do.  I have coloured all the images with my Stampin Up inkspots  and blender pen.  Then added some Kindy Glitz to the petals.  The card and paper are from a Stampin Up set that I won from Ruth and am not really sure on the colours.

I am entering all of these creations into the No No Challenge at Stamping Vacation........the challenge is to not use any punches.

Side view of the concertina folder.  Surprisingly easy to make.

I really like the colours of this card...they are all stamping up colours.    Finished this card with faux stitching around the edge of the topper.
The photo doesn't show but I have added Kindy Glitz to the petals and Dimensional Magic to the centres.  I do think this card looks much better in real life.  Now that I look at the card on here I am thinking I should have put a little more on the strip along the bottom......too late ..... present is all wrapped.

Take care and I will have another scheduled post again soon I am sure.
I am so hoping these are all working otherwise I have lots to show you in January. :-)

Oh and the third card I scheduled a post for a couple of days ago as I wanted to enter into another challenge.  The Build-A-Sketch Challenge at Stamping Vacation.
