This month my theme is an oldie but goodie ...... explosion folds! Boy, oh boy, did I have a lot of fun making different explosion cards! Here's another basic explosion card (on the left). The butterfly on the inside is from Lots of Words stamp set that was featured earlier this week. To the right is a folded oriental screen card, just to change things up a bit and on the inside I used one of last month's release stamp sets called Out on the Town . Did a lot of coloring using my Prisma color pencils and you know how much I like my color pencils.  Remember to comment on our blogs for a chance to win one of the new release stamp sets.  It's time to continue on to An'Jenic's blog to see her beautiful butterflies.

Here's the Design Team:
