First Joy Card

Morning and I have two more DT posts to share today and the 2nd one is for the "Birthday" challenge at Get Creative and we are sponsored by Fabrika Fantasy and I used the happy PRE-COLOURED image Happy Raccoon.The stamped sentiment was a craft mag freebie.
I mage my first ever Joy Fold Card and kept it pretty simple,
The uncoloured leaf paper was errrr borrowed shall we say from grandaughters colouring book lol and was just matted onto black and white cardstock the stitched square dies from The Works.
