Iris Folded Bauble Christmas Card

This is my card for the Reader Patterned Paper Design Team in the Quick Cards Made Easy magazine.

I have covered my card blank with patterned paper. I printed a Iris folding pattern and used various patterned papers from the set to complete the bauble. I attached the folding to my card then added satin ribbon. I attached two sentiments that came with the patterned papers.
