Birthday Wishes in a Tri-Fold

 The challenges at Joan's Gardens have been relatively easy the last couple of weeks but this week she raised the bar a bit requiring us to work a bit more. Her challenge #13 was to make a tri-shutter card, use  more than one design paper, use something dimensional and use ribbon or lace.  I have made this kind of card before but this was a bit more labor intensive....I kept adding more layers and had used 5 Pattern Papers and 2 solid CS's when I was done. I changed the card base 3 times before I decided which one to use. I love this Graphics DP and have been hoarding it but decided this was the perfect card and time to use it. I am letting the pictures and supplies list tell the story of this card rather than going through all the details.

Challenges:
Joan's Garden: Details listed above.  I covered them all.
Cheery Lynn: Challenge is think spring. I think the butterflies and floral paper sing Spring.
Cupcake Craft Challenges: Spring is in the Air theme.
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge: Use 2 or more different designer papers.
Scrap Creations: Spring Theme
Crafty Sentiments:  Spring Creations using pastel colors.
CRAFTS AND ME: Use 3D embellishments.
Flutter by Wednesday: Birthday Card with butterfly.
Simon Says: April Showers Bring May Flowers...lot of spring flowers in my card.






















Supplies:
Stamps: Creative Vision "Make a Wish"
Inks: Memento Bamboo Leaves
Copics R01 to color the white Crochet flowers
Papers: Textured Green CS from Stash, GKD Ivory CS, SU Green Pattern, Graphic 45 "Once Upon a Springtime", Scraps for Butterflies
Dies: Nesties Label 4 and Oval, Cheery Lynn Butterfly and Fanciful Flourish
Crochet Flowers from stash (some homemade by Rita)
BasicGrey Brads, Ivory Organza Ribbon, and Pearls from Stash

Thanks for dropping by...always enjoy hearing from you.
