purple iris ship one not three

This is a christmas card experiment,iris folding isn't something I do alot of so am not particularly profficient at it, but once in a while it's nice to do something completely different to stamping. I don't know why I did purples but I'm glad I did as now I can enter the challenge over at Allsorts who want a purple project.

One stop craft challenge want some fancy folding so I think I'll enter my little ship into their challenge too as they count iris folding as fancy.

Cupcake challenge have a theme of a christmas carol and though I'm not sure whether its classed as a carol I couldn't stop singing I saw 3 ships come sailing in whilst I was making this card good job no one heard me as I got worse and worse the longer I sang, or howled howver you want to call it, made funny noises etc, but I enjoyed myself. hope you like the card.
