A Fancy Tri-Shutter Card

Hi all,

Hope you've all had some nice weather this weekend.  I actually managed to fit in some weeding and tidying up in the garden and then I remembered I hadn't made a card for the new Crafty Cardmakers Challenge, so that was my Saturday night taken care of!

Annette is our hostess for this challenge and she has chosen a Tri-Shutter Card with a Stamped/Digital Image (with the added optional twist of using blue, yellow and green)

Well, I have to admit I found this challenge very tricky, I've never made a tri-fold card before and although the actual folding & cutting of the card was straightforward enough, I found it quite difficult filling in all the different sections.  However, I persevered and this is what I came up with ...

Supplies used:
Stampin Up Stamps - Fresh Vintage, Autumn Days, French Foliage, Sincere Salutations
Card Stock and Ink - Stampin Up Raspberry Ripple & Lucky Limeade
Textured Satin Card punched with EK Success Border Punch
Some Green leafy DP
Butterflies punched from inky, glittery scraps I had lying around

Our sponsors for this challenge are 
who are donating a $10 gift voucher

who have donated a stamp set and chalks

Sorry, I haven't been around much again lately, I've been asked to take a table at the local school summer fayre which is this coming Saturday so I've been busy trying to think up and make some Father's Day and Teacher's thank you gifts.  To say the house is like a bomb site is an understatement!

So thank you very much for popping in, see you all soon.

Take care

Suze xx
