Jump for Joy ( Fold Cards! )

I think I'm in love!!!..... with these new Basic Grey papers!  They're from a pack called Kissing Booth.  Every design is stunning and they smell great too..... mmmmmmmm new papers!
I went to Elgin yesterday, to Papercraft Boutique, home of Sugar Nellie and just had to buy a couple of stamps.  Well it would have been rude not to, wouldn't it?  This is one of my new ones, Claudia the Artist.  She reminds me so much of my teenage self, floaty silk trousers, scarf, paintbrush in hand and looking a bit moody.  I could hardly wait to get home to play with my goodies!
Monday night is craft night with the girls and this week we all made joy fold cards, mine of course was made with my new stash.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers.  The image is quite small and I was very glad of my fine nibs.
All the plain cardstock is Papermania and the patterned ones are all from my new Basic Grey stack.
The flower was made with my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, such a fab die, I just love it.
I've managed to be quite restrained with the bling in this one, just a bow and a few glass nuggets to finish it off.

I am entering this card in the following challenges - 
Lexi's Creations - #59 - monochrome
Everybody-Art-Challenge - #182 - monochrome
