Monday Funday #23 - Fairytale Inspired

My time as a TGF Farm Fresh Challenge DT member is winding down.  It is bittersweet.  I have been in the midst of a multi-state move, so it is a challenge to get the cards done and pack/unpack.  This has been an amazing opportunity and Jess and the girls have helped me keep my sanity through it all...so a huge thank you to them for all their support.  Also, a huge thanks for all the supportive and fab comments from my followers...you have made my day!
This week's challenge is Fairytale Inspired.  No princesses for this girl!  I picked Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  This is my first accordian card.  It isn't perfect but I did think it turned out rather cute.  The base is Chocolate Chip with layers of Provocraft sky paper, pine green, kraft, and Summer Sun.  I inked the sky paper in Pool Party ink before freehand cutting a hill and using the EK Success pine tree border punch for the little trees.  The green layers are inked in Lucky Limeade.  The grassy paper in the foreground is Provocraft grass print.  I used scraps of craft to make it look like a dirt path.  It is inked in CTMH's Brown Bag.  The images are from TGF's Miss Anya Lounge and Toby digi.  They are both colored in copic markers and Miss Anya is mounted with dimensionals.  The "sun" is stamped in Summer Sun in Timber Brown Staz-On using TGF's retired "Hello Go Round" and punched and layered with a circle and scallop circle punches.

Brilliant! I love this fold you used, it made a perfect scene for your card! The background with the hill and tree are awesome! Great work!

Moving sucks, hope everything gets back to normal for you soon!
