It's feeling like fall at LCI!

Happy Tuesday all my fellow bloggers. Today I was chosen to pick the challenge for Totally ladybug Tuesday and I chose fall with the option of a fancy fold on your card. Now why I chose this option is beyond me because other than one or two easel cards I have never done any other type. But I guess it pushes me to try something new right?



I chose Frog chasing Jack and made a trifold card. I have shown you a picture of it both closed and open. I was going to decorate the inside and might still do it but the paper I used already has some texture to it and I like the look of it so it might just stay as it is. I have used a green satin ribbon to tie it shut and played around with my new copic airbrush. It is a little splotchy as I am still getting used to it but I think it makes the background look a little dirty and with Jack that is probably a natural thing for him!  Besides, it is my blog and I can justify whatever I choose! Alright, let us see what you can make with a fall theme and/or a fancy folded card for your chance to win a free stamp or be chosen as one of the top three and get to place our banner on your sidebar.

That frog looks so worried!! Great card Amanda, I like these style of cards and the ribbon really pings against the darker background. Thank you for the challenge this week, I am sorry I forgot to do the fancy fold :-( Pami x

Love this Amanda...beautiful pp and of course my favourite colour of ribbon from SU! I have one of those Copic air thingamabobs..they are a bit tricky to use...probably why mine has been in the drawer for the last year lol. Now you've got yours I'll dig mine out and have a practise. As always your colourings if fabulicious. thanks for a great challenge xx

A gorgeous card Amanda. As always, your coloring is perfect and the dp is so pretty with that yummy ribbon.

Oh I like this. The green ribbon perfectly matches your frog, which makes him really pop out and pulls everything together.
Hope the new job is going ok.

My friend. I have come over and looked at your wonderful card three times this week. I am so sorry that I have been so busy and running so behind on schedule that it isn't until right now that I can tell you just how beautiful this is and I am sooooo loving how you are using your Spellbinders. Great work. Hugs, Lisa
