Tri-Shutter Card.

On Tuesday a friend showed me a picture and asked if I could do the template for her, I did but wasn't happy with it, then I came across a blog, cant remember which it was with a link to SlipCoastStampers, and there it was. Hooray!!!!!!!
It was MIL Birthday on Thursday so I made a different card, I really wanted to try out this style.

The papers are from Stampin' Up. They are from the Mini, and are called Tea Party, along with the ribbon. I was not keen at first but they are growing on me.
The cupcake and sentiment were from a new stamp set I bought from The Greeting Farm range.

I gave it a little bit of stickle to bling it up a bit. The cupcake was coloured using my Promarkers, Apple and Ivory.

This is the card opened up. Isn't it fab!

This is another image from the stamp set, Isn't she adorable, at first I thought she was wearing so weird hat, but then started colouring and realised she was holding balloons. I used Promarkers again, they are on fire this week, LOL!! (Dare I enter another card to the PFP Challenge!!!!)
Anyway I used, Pastel Pink, Mustard, Cornflower Blue, Apple, Blush and Cocoa. Then edged in Ice Grey 1 and highlighted with a white gel pen.

Then the old faithful retro flower punch layered up and some stickles!

I hope MIL likes it!!
Have a great weekend, back to work on Monday!!
