PWC1: Bending it like Beckham

I'm pretty sure my card wouldn't be able to win a a soccer game but it can bend... in two places. It has twice as much bend as a regular card, so much bend in fact that it is a tri-fold card. It's still not going to win that soccer game but I think it wins the cute card trophy! :)

Maybe you could win a little somethin' somethin' too. How you ask? Well, Paper Pretties is doing a little thing called a Pretties Weekly Challenge over in their forum. Each week on Thursday a challenge will be issued and everyone has a week to make a card and submit it. At the end of the week a winner is chosen and Christie will mail that person a small gift from the Paper Pretties store. Too cool! Oh and guess what... I'm the challenge issuer. Oh yeah, I get to pick the challenges... mwah ha ha ha! I am going to have so much fun with this (I really need an evil smiley to insert here).

Quick notes for my tri-fold card: Card base is a 4 1/4" x 11" piece of Bravo Burgundy cardstock scored at 4 1/4" and 8 1/2" along the long edge. Card is kept shut with a velcro dot that is affixed to the card behind the main panel. Main image was stamped in Black StazOn on Very Vanilla cardstock and watercolored with Stampin' Up! markers and an AquaPainter.
