Truly Scrumptious-Folds

I love taking part in challenges but never seem to get as many done as I would like to. This week I've made time to play along with the Truly Scrumptious challenge which is to us more than one fold on your card.

I had loads of fun with this one!

I am a big fan of 6x6 paper pads, the patterns are just the right size for cards. so when I saw that Karen had some in the store that I hadn't spotted before I had to snap them up because they always sell out so quickly. The papers on this card are from my favourite pad Basic Grey Marrakech aren't they gorgeous!
I cut the circle on my Silhouette, I'm really pleased with how it looks so I think you may be seeing some more of these cards from me. The Stamp is Elegant Annie only available from Charmed Cards and Crafts.
So where is the second fold? I hear you ask, well it's on the inside of course........
This card is going to be a thank you card for my aunty Cath - she's knitted me a lovely scarf, I think the stamped image of Irresistable Annie on the flap is perfect for saying thank you.

I hope you like it, thank you for looking and have a lovely day
