SNSDC47 Make a Joy-Fold Card

Hello and welcome to the SNSDC47. This week we're challenging you to make a joy-fold card. If you've never tried making one, here's a tutorial to show you how.
I'm using the SNSS Cocoa's Leaf digi image, which I colored with Copics. The dsp is from K&Co and I accented with early espresso and bashful blue card stock. The border was done with an EK punch, and I accented with some blue twill. The  Circle was done with 4 different layered punches and a copper leaf brad.

Here's what the card looks like inside, done with some matching embossed gold card stock. I used a TH Sizzix Damask ef and some SU word window and fancy label punches for the sentiment.
Thanks for stopping by and why not give this joy fold a try? There's always a nice prize given away at the end of the month if you're playing along. You aren't required to use SNSS digi images, but we love seeing them when you do!
Have a fantastic Friday and thanks for stopping by!

Carol, fabulous card. I love how you colored Cocoa and the leaf. Looks like a real leaf. Your leaf brad is a cute touch and I love that border punch. The inside of this card is just as pretty as the outside. Talk to you soon.
