Challenge #259

Welcome back to Penny's 1st challenge of 2016!!
I hope you enjoyed your holidays! We did even though we celebrated a little late (Jan 3rd actually). The joys of have family with different time schedules and sickness! No major sickness, but enough to delay things a bit. Oh well, still had a wonderful time watching the grandkids opening gifts :)
Our 1st challenge of 2016 is:
More than 1 fold
I wanted to challenge myself a bit on this one. I never really think to do more than 1 fold and I wanted to do something more than a "normal" gate fold card that I know. So, I was looking at tutorials on YouTube and came across a very interesting looking one I wanted to try. It's done by Split Coast Stampers and you can find the link here.
Here is my 1st try at this card! My measurements were off just a 'smidge', but I think I did pretty good for my first try at this type of card!


I wanted to give you a couple of different angles to see how awesome this fold is!
Products used:
Image: Sami Stamps Valentine Rose Feathers
Paper: the Paper Studio-Oh La La, brown & pink textured cardstock
