enjoy nature's splendor

today I have a "Joy fold" and spotlight card to share with you
 I really like this fold and the technique I haven't done either in a long time...but with them both being challenges at MFP I thought I'd give it a try once more.
I used my Autumn glory stamp set from MFP and followed the mesurements for the tutorial on MFP I had to alter the front a bit but the others seemed to be perfect! (I did turn it) and with the spotlight I followed that tutorial as well (they have some awesome tutes over there) I stamped my MFP leaf to make some patterened paper and used a lil fall looking flower to hold the card shut...I love how this turned out...if you know me you know I love fall!

thanks for taking a look :)
