Squigglefly Blog Challenge #51

Wow 51 challenges already, unbelievable. This week's Squigglefly Blog Challenge is set by the fabulous Kim and we have to make a 'joy fold' card.
I just had to use the new release 'Columbine' flower again..... 2 posts in a row,  I couldn't help myself. I just love it.
Here is my card

Most of you have probably seen this style of card before and never known what it was called. ( I know I didn't)
The instructions can be found HERE at Splitcoast Stampers
I have created my card using plain white cardstock, 2 shades of Pink Bazzill, and speciality paper by Imaginisce. On the small strip of dark pink I punched the edge with the 'Iron Gate' border punch by Martha Stewart
I printed out the flower, It is a digi image from Squigglefly.
The sentiment is one that I created. I then cut out the 2 circles with the nestabilities
I then coloured using my Prismacolor Pencils blended with odourless mineral spirits.
Once coloured I inked around the edge of the white card  with pink chalk ink and adhered it altogether following the tutorial.
If you like this columbine flower and today's card and my previous card inspire you, you will find the image HERE

Until Next Time
Inking of you All

I think you were made to color these columbines Michelle! You color them beautifully! I love the papers you've used on this card too, and the border punch is really cool!
