Fancy folded DT card for Digital Pencil Too

Hi my dear all!
Wow, girls, I have some fabulous news to share with you today! I've been keeping this for myself for about a week or so now but eventually I can share with you: I've been asked to join the Digital Pencil Too Design Team!!!!Isn't that awesome!!! This is like a dream come true!!! My very first stamp was a Mo Manning digi and that was only about 8 months ago and now I'm joining her fabulous team! Wow! I'm so very excited:)
Right now, my spare time is really scarce but the DT girls surely made me an offer I could not
The challenge theme set for this week is "Flowers, flutters, fairies, fancy fold (use any or all)".
Isn't that fabulous? I really cannot imagine myself making a card without using at least one of those:).

My card is in fact a birthday card I made for my nephew who's 1 year old now. My sister is not exactly into boyish colors, this is the reason why I went for green, lime and orange. I chose this gorgeous image because he loves playing in the water and we all have to stay far away from him when he's given the bath, otherwise we get completely soaked.
It seems my printer ink is not waterproof and the dimensional gaze and distress stickles wiped it off. Sorry for that; imagine that the boy has been really dirty and the water got
So, from the two F's I chose "flowers" and "fancy folds".  It's not exactly the classic 1yr old birthday but they all loved it and the boy wasn't even allowed to touch it, so I guess it was just perfect.

The inside is pretty simple:

Embellies: Wild Orchid Crafts roses, leaves, metal corner and pins, ribbon and lace  from stash, brads from Joanna Sheen
Dies: classic and scalopped circle nesties, Cheery Lynn doily, label 16 nesties
Misc: antique linen and vintage photo distress inks, ranger distress stickles, diamond glaze
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley

You already know how much I love the bright colors you use, this card is awesome! I didn't notice the ink smearing til you said it, I think theres so much to look at here you don't notice.

Sandy said...

You have just given me some great ideas!!! Thank you Iulia. Cute as can be and I am in awe of your design style. I think it must be the European influence. Who knows, maybe we will meet in Paris one day but I must admit I prefer Florence.
Love to you dear heart - Sandy

Such a beautiful card Iulia, I love the bright colors, I think they are just perfect for a little boy. Your coloring is just stunning. And I too have to say have smearing trouble when using stickles. I thought it was just me. I now use loose glitter with a glue pen. But love stickles much more.
