August Iris Fold Challenge

Here is my entry for the August iris fold challenge at This was a fun but challenging pattern. I used my Fiskars Wisteria Lane oval punch for the green oval behind the fairy. The background is brown mulberry paper stamped with gold ink. The fairy is folded with white see-thru paper for the wings, purple vellum for the dress, iridescent paper for the skin, and gold moire for the hair.
