Hello fellow crafters, and welcome to my newest followers. I hope you enjoy your visits.
My goodness, the east coast of Australia is experiencing some major extremes in weather conditions! About 8 weeks ago we were on bushfire alert (we live in a rural area), and sadly, several hundreds of homes were destroyed. About 4-5 weeks ago, there were cyclones, mini-tornadoes and major floods, again with many homes and businesses destroyed, and now we have major flooding again. In the past 3 days, we had some of the heaviest rain in the 33 years we have lived here.

On a happier note, it is time for another challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty, and once again the theme is one I am sure you will love -
Our generous sponsors this week are -

I have used Sassy Studio Design's Elizabeth, and my favourite colour is burgundy, followed very, very closely by pink
I'm not sure what this fold is called, but I saw it in a magazine several years
ago. There were no instructions, so I experimented with some scrap paper,
made a template, which I squirrelled away, and forgot all about it until I was
looking for something else.
Here is the card, opened out. That beautiful paper, by Papermania, has 
a linen texture.
I coloured the image with my promarkers - this photo has her dress more 
'true to colour' than the top 2 photos. I added Stickles Star Dust
to the front of her dress, her earring, and her ring.
The 'inside' of the card. The layered scallops and the metallic
border strip are burgundy, not black as they appear in the photo.
