Inky Impressions new challenge

Hello to all my friends, followers and visitors today.
Well, it's not often I do a post on two days running but todays post is to tell you about the new challenge that is beginning today at Inky Impressions which you can find here. I was lucky enough to win a Guest Design spot in one of their recent challenges and Shell asked me if I would like to take part. I felt really honoured and couldn't wait to join in.
The theme for this challenge is 'More than one Fold' so I had to get my thinking cap on!!
I chose this gorgeous image from Inky Impressions called Balloon Lili to use on my card and came up with this design-I wanted to give it the feel of a present opening up??
I coloured the image with my Promarkers and used some papers from DCWV which I got from the Range a little while ago. I added some punched balloon shapes and some little 3D embellishments to the open flaps. I also decoupaged the middle orange balloon. The sentiments are a mix of computer generated and stamped.
Some glitter and little punched stars finished it all off:

The lovely  DT ladies at Inky Impressions have been super busy making some gorgeous inspiration cards for you to look at so I hope you can find a minute to pop on over and take a peek and enter the challenge too which runs till the 19th May.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Shell and the DT very much for asking me to take part in their challenge and I had lots of fun making my card!!
