Sassy Judy gave us a lavender, white and green challenge this week at SassyCheryl's.  Cheryl just put this sweet little Story Teller in her shop and I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!  When I saw it I thought about Goldilocks and the 3 bears story.  I think this week's challenge was meant to be for me.  I had bought this purple and green plaid paper a while back at Aww Shucks, the purple and green polka dot ribbon from Hobby Lobby  and I had seen this particular fold on a couple of blocks last week.  Well it just all came together easy peasy.

I printed the Story Teller 3 times, cut all 3 bears out and Goldilocks once and colored with them my Copics.
To make the base card, I used a green SU card stock layered the plaid and cut a wide polka dot strip.  Adhered all three together.  Doesn't this story fit perfectly on this tri-fold card?

To make the base shape:
Fan-fold a 8 1/2 piece of paper in three even panels.  Fan fold them together and cut  a diagonal corner off of the top of all three panels..  I did the same cut with the plaid DP making it a tiny bit smaller so the back green paper would show through.

I glued a polka dot ribbon across the top of the polka dot paper and punched a white border with my EK Success paw print border along the bottom edge.  The flag banner was cut freehand with the reverse side of the plaid showing and some purple card stock as mats.  They are hung from a piece of crocheted thread and tied off in a bow at both sides.  The letters are stickers, but you can use stamped letters too.

I know this is another "sweet card".  I started to sass it up by using "You never know who you will find in your bed" as my sentiment.  I know Marlene would love that one. 

Disclaimer:  Blame Cheryl Alger for all this sweetness.  She creates the absolutely sweetest characters to work with.    Gotta love her though, I do.

Peace to everyone and my prayers for everyone in Irene's path.
