Iris Folding

I joined a mingle, aka 1-4-1 trade, over at the AboutOrientalStampArt Yahoo group for iris folding.  I do not do that often at all!  So, I tried one card and totally failed, so this is my 2nd try.....

 I did enjoy making the card once I got the hang of it.....  I added shimmer to the coin image- as you can see...  The cardstock I used is pre-scored with a pattern, too bad it does not show up!

Here is my 1st try
 Another pattern from the internet- if I did this again, I would fill in the numbers backwards- as it is, this is pretty flat.  But I still think it turned out OK.

We have a busy weekend. My youngest brother is here from Texas to visit my mother, and I have to work at the stamping sale I destashed on Saturday.  We will meet up with my sisters Saturday night for dinner so they can visit with my brother as well.

Hoping you have a great weekend!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
