Canada Inks Up! Blog Hop - November 2022

Time for another Canada Inks Up! Team Blog Hop.  This month our theme is "Birthday".  I used the beautiful Fitting Florets Bundle and Designer Series Paper for this Diagonal Fold Fancy Fold card.  Wouldn't you love to get this beauty in the mail for your special day!

This card looks complicated, but is really easy to make.  Thanks to Karen Ksenzakovic for the insipiration!
