Tri-Fold Pocket Card and WT Challenge Card

Oh my goodness is Blogger ever being a pain today! I guess that's what we get when it's free! LOL...have to put up with some issues :(
Yesterday Beate wrote a tutorial for SCS called Tri-fold pocket card. It's very well written and if you get a chance check it out in the Resource section on SCS.
I got to use my new Chic stand that Angie sent me too! It helped me when layering the flowers and adding the Rhinestone brads. Thanks again Angie!
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, Rose Red and Cutie Pie DP; Accessories: Rhinestones, 5 petal flower punch, Boho blossom punch, Slit punch, Bashful Blue Double Stitched Ribbon
Today on SCS is the Ways To Use It's all about snipping today! I decided I'd paper piece the bird from A Little Birdie Told Me set. It hasn't seen ink in a long
