Thank You Tri Fold Shutter

I know, I know, another tri fold shutter card...lol  :)   But, I was asked to make a special card for someone who donated a substantial amount to us at work, so I thought I would make another one of these, with some really pretty sparkly and sheen papers.  I hope she likes it!  :)

I'm also submitting this 'winged creation' to the current Stampotique Designer's Challenge.  You can see the current challenge here.  You'll always see some gorgeous work over there and some funny, off the wall creations, too!  I always get a kick out of some of them!  lol  :)  Here's a link to my inlinkz submission.  I hope I did this right!

This is what my card looks like when it's all folded up like a standard A2 style card.


Here's a bit of a close up of the embossed sentiment and the butterflies that I cut out from the patterned paper and popped up off the card.

Here's a view from the top of the card to show you the dimension.

Well, I bought some new paint for my living room to spruce it up since I just got new furniture, so I need to go start taking off the existing wallpaper border and fill the cracks.  By tomorrow I should be able to start the painting.   Finally, after being in our home for 4 years, we're getting around to painting the last room in our house!  We're quite the procrastinators!  lol  :)  Anyway, I think it will look really nice when it's done...off to work! I'll post pics when I'm done.

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
