Spots & Stripes

Morning everyone - here we are at the last Friday in June - and what a wash out it's been so far, it hasn't stopped raining up here in Yorkshire.

Your Totally Papercrafts host this week is the fabulous Vicky
with the theme

Spots & Stripes

This is a Trifold Pocket card, and I followed the great tutorial by Beate Johns.
I made my card a little bit taller so that I could easily fit a face mask sachet inside.
This was so quick and easy to make, it would be perfect if you had a lot of little gifts to make up. I can see it with a chocolate bar inside, or a little notepad, hot chocolate/coffee sachets, etc etc.

The cute little 'Grace & Puppy' image is from one of our sponsors this week - Digi Stamp Boutique.
I hope you will join in the fun and check out the fab work from my fellow teamies over on the challenge blog.
