Flowers, a Bee and Paper Lace

Welcome.

After making several Z-fold cards recently, I thought I would try a variation on the theme.


 I made this an upright fold, and used three small (Couture Creation) dies to create the swing panels


I used two different stamps on the panels - a retired Layers of Color flower, 


and an unknown bee (very old, it is one of my originals).


The paper on the back edge is part of a page from a Rosie's 6x6 pad called 
Far Away Land.


The lace on the left hand side is a self-adhesive paper lace.

  6. Fancy folds are always impressive to me, since I don't do them (at least do them very well!). This is so pretty with the trio of images on the swing fold, and I love that border trim too. I'm with Lynn, scary bee...but he must be after that gorgeous flower. Beautiful card, Maxine! TFS & Hugs
