The Crazies are JOYous this week!!!

Cindy is our Crazy4Challenges hostess for the month of July.  For this week's challenge she asked us to make a JOY fold card.  I put the smaller picture on the left so you can get an idea of the actually fold/formation.  For those who want a tutorial, go to the resource center on Splitcoast and there are both written/photo and video directions by Beate.

I am not a fancy fold afficionado.  I tend to use A-2 or square cards.  So, I am actually happy, though a bit challenged, when one of my challlenge team hostesses make me work out of my comfort zone......and Cindy surely managed to do that this week.  However, I must honestly say that the fold itself is easy peasie.....it is the 'decorating' decisions that take the longest.  Despite the varied dp and the bright colors, I feel like this one needs some finishing detail that hasn't come to mind yet.........oh well!!!!

I, like many of you, can't wait to see what the rest of this team created with this JOY fold.......so to check them out I encourage you to visit the Crazies Blog

This card will also be entered into Speedy's Friends Challenge which was to use the colors of yellow, pink, and green.  The set I used is a recently released set from Mark's Finest Papers.
