Dots, Woodgrain and Floral Tri-fold card

 Happy Saturday, Crafters!

Do you know what Saturday means? Another challenge at Totally Gorjuss.  The challenge this week is Dots...a perfect excuse to make a project using my favorite pattern!  

Recently I purchase a package of the My Mind's Eye 12x12 Howdy Doody collection.  Not only did it contain two of each of the papers but also the stickers, rub-ons, wood cutouts and other goodies.  It was a steal of a deal for only $5!!  Woo-who!  So, I thought I would make a tri-fold card using this kit.  

The front panel was made using a pale yellow background with white polka dots.  Mini bouquets are also on the paper- so pretty.  I die cut a doily (Couture Creations die, Alcyone Doily).  I applied TH distress ink Bundle Sage to a wood cutout and then applied the beautiful flower rub-on.  A large pale green bow, yellow twine and peach rose (Recollections) was then assembled.  
The tri-fold inner panels used the bottom portion of one of the woodgrain sheets.  It also has the most colorful roses...I love this paper!  I fussy cut one of the stickers (My Favorite Things About You) and adhered to the last panel with half a doily.  The other half of the doily was quartered and adhered to the front.

The craziest part of this card?  I did not stamp anything!  I do not believe I have made a card without a stamp before...kinda neat, huh?

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your wonderful comments!  Looking forward to seeing your projects at Totally Gorjuss!

Have a great weekend!
Kathy Jo
