Medallions and Pearls

Hmmm...I am not sure what to write today, lol. Anyone else ever run into that problem? I guess that means my post will be short, ha ha ha
I joined a wonderful Teabag Folding group on Yahoo. Someone posted the directions for this fold and I just had to try it.
All the paper I used is from Paper Temptress. I printed the fold on my favorite paper of all time, white diamond.
The white diamond is a bit thick for teabag folding so I had a bit of a hard time with the first few folds. I think next time I will print out some on computer paper, lol. It certainly won't be a pretty but will be much easier to fold.
Can you see the wonderful shimmer of the paper? The card is so pretty in real life. The ribbon and pearls are actually left over from making my daughters wedding invitations 3 years ago! I have all the scraps and left overs in a bin hiding in one of my cabinets. So glad I remembered it for this card as they matched perfectly.
I used more left over ribbon on the inside instead of pearls. the pearls really would have made the card impossible to close, lol

Well, off to make my card for tomorrows Digital Tuesday Challenge. Before I can do that, though, I need to get rid of the clutter in my craft room, tee he he. I have had so much fun playing that I neglected to put everything way. much paper to put back in their files...someday I will learn to file them as I cut, Bwaaa ha ha ha!!!

I am entering this card in the following challenges (I hope a stamp is not required!)
Cowgirls Sunday Challenge: Girly Girl
Crafty Card Makers: Fancy Folds
Theres Magic in the Air: Frame it out

Have a super Monday everyone.
