Cute Little Folio Card

When I was at the Rubberstamp Expo a couple weekends ago, I picked up some really fun card bases from The Paper Cut. If you ever see one of their booths, take the time to shop! They have some unique designs and great ideas!
To keep the story going (teehee), Jerry took me to Archiver's the other day, and Basic Grey came out with this new Wisteria paper. Oh, my goodness! I told the gals at Archiver's that Basic Grey just never goes wrong with their designs. So beautiful! On top of it all, my Wisteria is starting to green very nicely on the trellis so hopefully (if it warms up!) we'll see big old blooms again at the end of June.
I used two different Nestabilities to cover the half rounds - the large Scallop and the large Circle. You only need to make two and then cut them in half. I put self-adhesive pearls on each scallop center. The flower is from the matching Basic Grey Wisteria sticker sheet. What is so difficult to show is that I've sprayed that with pearl Glimmer Mist. Oh, do I like that product! I will be using that often!!
Below you'll find a picture of the card opened up, face down. It's just so much fun to create and work with new things!!
