Fancy Folds with Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #8

FANCY FOLDS CHALLENGE #8
WITH
CRAFTY GALS CORNER CHALLENGE BLOG

This week I had the privilege of working with  SAMI STAMPS digital image, Leprechaun Cutie. And let me tell ya, she is a cutie!This is not the first time I've worked with a digital image by Sami Stamps. Some of you may remember the "Love Bug Hugs" card I made and that cutie was from Sami Stamps, too.  So you get the idea, I'm really loving Sami Stamps! If you haven't checked it out be sure  to do so. I think there  is something for everyone. 
So without further ado, I give you my card.


Colored with COPICS, layered on Jillibean Soup
Spotted Owl Soup and white cardstock.
My fancy fold is obviously, a side step card.

This side step card is really fast and easy. And you can make any size card you want with it. Use the scraps to make "baby" step cards!
3"x4"

 So now it's your turn to show us your take on  Fancy Folds.  Hop on over to Crafty Gals Corner  and join us for Challenge #8.…
