Tri-Shutter Card


Good morning everyone.  I'm running behind this morning as my life has just run over the top of me!  I'm so far behind I think I'm in front!  I just keep working and getting farther and farther behind.  I think I'm gonna have to run up a white flag!  But better late than never I think!

My card this morning is a Tri-Shutter card that I want to enter in the challenge over at Joan's Gardens.  I love her challenges and play whenever I can.  I love these cards and this is only the second one I have ever made so please be gentle about it!  As suggested I checked out the resource area over on SplitCoast Stampers and found the instructions...there is also a video for the challenged person like me!

Anyway Joan's instructions were to include the following:

Make a Tri-Shutter Card
Used more than one design paper
Use something dimensional
Use ribbon or lace

I did all of the above and this is what I came up with.  I used all kinds of dies to adorn the three different papers.  I even glittered my butterfly.  I hope you can see him OK.  I actually forgot about the ribbon or lace and at the last minute I had to find a place for a little piece of lace. 

I had a really great time doing this card and I may just be trying another one or two in the near future!
Well that is it for me this morning.  I gotta run and get started on my chores.  I'm planting cabbage and potato's in the garden this morning.   I Must remember to Breathe!!
