Something a bit different!!

Hi all,
Back again with our next challenge at Totally Tilda & Friends.
Our challenge this time is:
Don't forget you can use any stamped image now but it must be stamped and coloured we will not accept any digital images.
And once again our fabulous sponsor is:
gif maker
And the prize that the lovely Nicky is offering is:
So without further ado here is my offering for this challenge:
I went off to You Tube and looked for a tutorial on Joy Fold cards because although I had heard of them I wasn't exactly sure whether my understanding was correct or not! 
Anyway, having watched the Tut, here is my card:
Thought I would use one of my Sweet Pea Stamps which haven't seen the light of day for ages.
I have used one of Ching-Chou Kuik's Mermaid stamps but I can't find it in the store anymore so not sure what it is called.  See I told you they hadn't seen the light of day for a while!! Lol
Anyhoo, I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noir Pencils and added a bit of glitter here and there.

The papers I have used are from the Lili of the Valley/Raspberry Road pad called Timeless Victorian. I love these papers - they are such lovely quality.
I used one of my Cosmos Daisies from Wild Orchid Crafts and one of their twirly stamens too.
I added two different tones of pearls to each corner just to finish off.
Quite please with how this turned out.  Can't wait to see what you have to show us.
