Spring Fold Diamond Birthday Card.

Good morning Fellow Followers, Bloggers and Visitors.

I imagine you are all snoozing in your beds right now lol..... I'm still awake and just cannot sleep.  Got a few things on my mind so decided to start crafting and do some colouring.  Well its worked and feel alot more relaxed now so thought Id put the card I made on my blog.

I hope you are all well and are looking forward to the weekend.

The card I made was created using two tutorials combined.  The first is the frame which was created by following the instructions on this site: Frame Tutorial  .  It is very easy to make and it really makes the image more of a focal point on your card.  The second tutorial was for the card itself.  All it took was one A4 piece of card stock which you scored in a few places followed measurements and voila you have this amazing card.  Tutorial here : Spring Fold card Tutorial.

The stamped image was a stamp from Whimsy Stamps which was coloured using my trust Pro Markers.
