Happileigh Scrappin Challenge #32 - Special Folds and Shaped Cards

Happi Monday morning - time for another weekly challenge over at Happileigh Scrappin'.   Leigh picked the challenge this week at Happileigh Scrappin' - Special Folds and Shaped Cards. 
We want to see cards that are different in shape than a normal square or rectangle, or projects with multiple folds - easel, gate, boxes , anything that has more than one fold.  You an check out all the fantastic cards our design team made over at the Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge.

For my card, I decided to use Leighs newest image - Court Jester to make a center-step birthday card.

I used Copics to color two Jesters and popped one up over the other to give him dimension.  The Buttons from Babies, Buttons, and Bows Borders and the Birthday Banner are also colored with Copics.  The buttons on the sides are also popped up with dimensional foam tape.  Everything is glued on a checked pale gray-blue design paper then matted on dark and light purple cardstocks. 

We're looking forward to seeing all your fabulous creations for this week's challenge over at Happileigh Scarppin'.

Have a great week.
