Nautical - It is time for a new challenge at The Sweet Pea Stampers. This fortnight's challenge is a photo inspiration.

Here is our photo for your inspiration. 

For my card, I went with a nautical theme. This card uses the fold that a lady's son came home with a magic trick, but she was so curious about the folds, that she created this fold for card makers. I tried to find the tutorial that I used, but I could not even remember her name, much less her blog. Her directions were very easy to follow.

My image is Spring Nocturne ©ching chou kuik by Sweet Pea Stamps. I used the digi, but she is also available in rubber. She is a gorgeous image and so fun to color with my Copics.

Here is a close up of the different flowers that I used on the front panel.

I used a MS punch for the Wings on the inner panels. 

This inner panel uses only the design paper, which is Authentique's, Anchored.

Here is the card opened.

The top inner panel uses a SB die, which I cut in red and navy and altered them on top of each other. My sentiment is by The Paper Company. 

I finished off my card with some tiny gemstones under the sentiment and a row bling a the bottom.
