Party Hardy

Morning all

Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend (in the UK) last week.  I've had the week off and have been playing in my craft room and catching up on some reading.  I also managed to squeeze in a little gardening in between all those showers and actually during one or two too!!  I'm really hoping that the storms that have been forecast don't do too much damage.

Onto my card today then...  I've used Party Hardy from Saturated Canary.  I have become a massive fan of Krista Smith's images lately.  She's been coloured with copics and had a little glitter here and there and glossy accent on her eyes and the cherry.  The backing paper is from my stash, so not sure who it's made by.  I added a couple of little woodware punched butterflies and the sentiment is from Whimsical Designs Everyday Stamps stamped with Versacolor Green Tea ink.  In an attempt to try something different I've made a sort-of diamond fold card, which I made from a piece of Core'dinations cardstock.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.  I decided not to add any embellishments as I want the card to fold flat into an envelope.
Sorry for the quality of the photo, there wasn't much light this morning.  If I get a chance I will try to get a better one.

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges:
